In 1958, while hiking in Colorado near Steamboat Springs (I was working in Steamboat Springs at the time), I came around a bend in a trail and suddenly was about 15 feet from a mother bear with a cub. I dropped to the ground, and didn't move until she and her cubs had moved away. I was VERY lucky she didn't attack me.

Bears are in most of the mountain areas of the USA and Canada, and you have to be prepared for them. You can't outrun them, and you damn sure can't fight them.

Photos on the camera and the images' timestamps showed that White was within 50 yards of the bear for at least eight minutes, without retreating. Permitted backcountry travelers in Denali are required to stay at least a quarter-mile from bears and leave the area if they happen upon one, Anderson said.

It's a good idea when walking in the bush to whistle a tune and NOT some of this modern sh*t that might just piss them off!

Would still be useless to run away.
A: the bear can smell your track
and
B: He'll catch you faster than you think.....unless you have a jetpack to get the puck away.

I think if you have 100 yards head start you have time to figure something out!

The proof you have is enough people in this world telling you to bring and use it because it might have worked for them in the past. And they still market the **** to work. Its like the water proof paper i know of, they wouldnt have it on the shelfs marketted as something important if it didnt work in the first place. Of course this depends on where you habituate yourself, im not going to pull a heavy and have "I was there moment".


It does f%$&* them up but only for a short time so make tracks and do it in fashion. If you frequent an area with alot of maced bears then bring a gun!!!! ...

And then theres another thing make sure you hit the bear in the right spot'cause gun or mace if your not using it right your going get bear handled.

I'm not worried for me,but for the bear

Anyway if some people go out there thinking they'll meet a cuddly bear,then screw them if they manage to get injured or killed.

GBears don't see well to begin with. But they do have excellent hearing and senses of smell.
Concerning the effects on their respiratory systems, they can sneeze and if it annoys them enough, they just get more destructive.

Yeah, I'm sure not about to go wandering among Grizzlies with a 12 oz. can of bear spray and a 5 gallon can might be a little awkward!
