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!
