The thrill of seeing a wild animal in their natural habitat never abates. It’s an unforgettable experience and the good news is you’ve got more chance now of seeing America’s Big Five – grey wolves, grizzlies, black bears, bison and moose – than at any other time in the past century.
Self-defense is extremely important in today’s dangerous world. If you are in a place that is frequented by bears, then you have to be ultra careful, you can get a few tips at campingfunzone.com. Bears are very powerful creatures and if you are caught with them, then it can cause serious damage which most often than not results in death. The bears then feed on you.
One of the best tools that can be used to defend yourselves against bears is bear mace, also called pepper spray. It is a low-risk tool and can be extremely useful if you are with a bear. It is much better than guns.
Bear spray, on the other hand, infuses and irritates the mucous membranes in the bear’s eyes and nose. “The bear can’t smell or see, and it’s in pain, so all it wants to do is get out of there,” he says. (The spray wears off after an hour or two, and there is no lasting harm done to the bear, he adds.)
