Someone asked me if bear spray really works. Yes and no, if it's black bear maybe, if it's not determined, grizzly forget it..but with the right gun.bear spray and lucky timing you could get enough time to run for it..best to have a plan..just in case..make sure to tie your food away from campsite and up in a tree..don't cook or eat where you sleep, ever, have a cook camp at least 100 yards away from where you sleep..i never had a problem in Alaska, but the bears in the Cascades have no fear, so be careful there.

I have bear spray for self defense rather than bears.

You might want to consider using Pepper Spray for the two-legged variety of bear..it's more potent

It's my understanding that bear spray can be purchased anywhere. In some states you have to go to a specific dealer to get pepper spray. And frankly, for me it's like carrying an umbrella; insurance I won't need it. It's like keeping the flashlight/truncheon next to my bed.
