I live in Southern Arizona where the Monument Fire just ran me out of my house this past weekend. Its burning the Huachuca Mountains. While I’ve not seen a bear down in the valley where I live, I’m sure they’re having to be very active right now and people who live anywhere near the outskirts of the mountains need to have bear MACE handy. All animals in this area are much more active than they would normally be this time of year.
For instance, twice in the past two days, I’ve seen coyotes at my house. Now, its normal to see one or two a week. But, its not normal to see one a day. What’s the correlation? Well, the coyotes are on the run right now. Its hot here. This is the time of year when they’re almost non-existent during the day. Its obvious that the fire is stirring them up. And, bears and mountain lions in the mountains are definitely being stirred up. If people who live around there don’t have any bear mace, they need to have something. I’m sure within the next week or so, we’ll read about some wild animal encounters in our local newspaper.
I live in Arizona where we currently have a number of fires burning in the mountainous areas around us. Not only do we have to deal with the actual smoke and fires and be wary of what’s going on with them, but we also have to be aware of the wild animals that are coming out of those areas and being pushed into areas where we live. Bear MACE is something that almost anyone living near these fires should have.
Bear MACE can be used on animals other than just bears. Not that I personally can recommend it, but I’ve heard reports of people using it on mountain lions and skunks who got too close. Its kinda sad, though, if you think about it. I mean, the bears and other animals didn’t want to have to come intermingle with us. They’re forced to. And, now, in an attempt to protect ourselves and our families, the bears are getting hit with MACE in the face. Poor guys.
People are regularly asking if Bear Mace will work on a Mountain Lion. And, while I can’t legally give any advice on how to handle yourself if you’re face to face with a mountain lion, I think a little bit of common sense will help.
Bear Mace is effective enough to penetrate the thick bear fur and get to the eyes and skin of a bear. I think it stands to reason that it will also work on a mountain lion as well as any other large animal. But, even with bears, you have to be careful. An agitated bear or mountain lion is still a dangerous thing. Your goal in spraying one of these large animals is merely to disorient them long enough for you to high tail it outta there. Again, while I can’t give any advice on exactly what to do, I can tell you what I do when I’m out in the woods. Actually, I hike quite a bit and I carry my Bear Mace with me where ever I go. I haven’t had to use it yet, but am prepared to when the time comes. And, whether I use it on a bear or rattlesnake or whatever, I have it and know that I have an extra level of protection.
You think you’ve got the nerves to use Bear Mace on a bear? I’m sure I’d freak out if I saw an attacking bear coming at me and in all honesty, I don’t know if I could stand and spray as opposed to high-tailing it outta there! But, I know, when I hike in the nearby mountains, I HAVE TO carry a can of Bear Mace. There is simply no option.
As we humans further encroach onto the bears’ native habitats, the bear encounters and attacks increase. I mean, like I say, here I am hiking in their homeland. What should I expect, right? Well, the same goes for any of the people who bought land and built their homes in those nearby mountains. They should expect to come across a bear or two while they’re there. And, as others live near streams, woods, forests, etc, the bear encounters are just a given. So, everyone in those situations needs to be prepared with some form of animal repellent. And, equally important, they need to spray a can of it just to get the feel for how far it’ll spray so they’ll feel more comfortable. Even though, I have done this practice spray, I have to say, it’ll be tough to stand and look at an oncoming bear.
Let’s face it, none of us wants to come face to face with an angry bear. But, more and more, people are having bear encounters as humans continue to encroach onto the bears’ native habitat. Whether you live near a stream or river, near woods or in the mountains, you have to be cognizant that a bear encounter and ensuing attack is possible.
I stress to hikers who frequent those types of areas to always carry a can of bear mace. It’s better to have it and not need than to need it and not have it. But, more than just hikers need to carry. Homeowners or cabin owners need to be prepared, as well. Think about taking the trash out and coming face to face with a hungry bear who is rummaging through your trash cans. It happens far more often than you might think. Our local newspaper regularly has articles where homeowners have had an encounter with a bear while the homeowner was simply milling around their property. A can of Bear Mace is a smart investment.
This may seem like a silly title, but let me assure you, my intention is to get your attention. Bear attacks are not a silly matter. And, Spring and Fall are when most bear attacks happen as more people are outside and bears are more active. So, don’t take any chances if you’re hiking or living near bear country. Rivers, Forests, Mountains and such are prime locations for Black, Brown and Grizzly Bears. This is certainly a case where an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
Purchasing a can of Bear Mace may just save your life. Even if all it does is provide you with a sense of security, isn’t that still a pretty good investment? Regardless, Bear MACE or Guardian Alaska Bear Spray or both highly effective at repelling bears if they get near you. However, experts advise not to simply spray the bear at first sighting. By all means, if the bear is aggressive or attacking, you need to do what you have to protect yourself. However, if the bear is a safe distance away, most experts advise to merely make loud noises and throw rocks or sticks in the direction of the bear, but not at the bear. Many times, they will simply leave.
I live in the high desert of Arizona, near some mountains. And, I like to hike. You can bet your bottom dollar whenever I go hiking into the mountains, I carry a big can of Bear MACE. We have quite a number of bear sitings and encounters around here and I’m not going to take any chance.
My can of bear MACE is always on the outside of my pack so I can get to it quickly. I haven’t seen a bear, yet, but I know many people who have and I have seen a bobcat. So, I hike prepared. And, if you live anywhere near mountains, streams, woods or any other place where bears are known to frequent, you also should be prepared with some form of animal repellent. Bear attacks are increasing in frequency as humans continue to encroach into the bears’ native habitats. What’s the old saying? “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”? No where is this more applicable than here.
If you like to hike in the mountains or if you live near mountains, streams, woods or anyplace where bears are known to roam, you really need to protect yourself with a can of bear mace. Bear encounters and actual attacks continue to increase in numbers as more and more people encroach into the bears’ native habitats.
A can of bear MACE is definitely strong enough to do the job. If you find yourself face to face with a bear, if the situation is not too dire, take a second and assess the nature of the bear. Determine if it is aggressive, curious or just like “whatever”. If its not aggressive, you probably won’t need the mace. If its not aggressive, you can probably get by with slowly walking backwards until you’re to a safe area. Or, you may find you need to throw rocks or sticks in the direction of the bear, being careful not to him them, as this will surely agitate them. And, of course, if you find the bear is aggressive, do not hesitate to protect yourself with the bear mace and high-tailing it outta there!
