When you take your kid hunting and he says thank you and tells you how much he loves being in the woods with you, your day just isn't going to get any better than that.

DAMN!!!!! he looks so much like a guy that started a bear spray company 20ish years ago.

here we go... mark matheny. i met him at a sporting goods store 20 some-odd years ago shortly after the incident as he had just started the company. if i remember right he shot a longbow.

That's crazy...scary stuff

I've been lucky to have numerous bear encounters in my time outdoors...the Va Black bear not the maul your ass Grizzly variety....only once did things get a little spooky.

I know bear spray is supposed to work way better than a handgun, still like the feel of a big revolver on my side where bears are concerned. At least you can make an exciting show of it while the bear rips your arms off :D

What is so interesting, is that I did not know this but bear spray is supposedly weaker than regular pepper spray. If I ever going to bear country I'm just going to get my wife's pepper spray out of her purse and take it with me. It's something like half strength or less

I thought the Bear spray was supposed to be harsher, of course there is nothing we won't do to people, so maybe. Good thing about a gun is it gives you options that spray doesn't like nailing a bastard 30 yards off making for your kid. Or starting the parade of lead while the bear is still 100 yds out. I didn't watch the vid, but if it is the selfie one where he gets charged from 80 yards... I want to start that parties way before the bear gets to spray distances. I mean, there has to be a difference between how effective spray is when a bear wanders over for a nip, and when he/she comes like an express train from 80 yds.

They have this movie about a backpacker who got eaten in Canada by a blackie. I was looking up the details on the real event, and one of the things they said was that when a bear is being territorial, etc... he puts on the show. But a blackie that wants to eat you may just wander over like a dog on a casual mission to sniff your balls, and then he just starts in. That sounds like a scenario for bear spray.
