ASK THE GAME & FISH

Q. “I plan on hunting and camping in an area frequented by grizzlies. Can I count on bear spray to deter bears?”

Pepper spray, sometimes referred to as bear spray, has proven effective in deterring attacks by bears. Most bear experts think that your chances of avoiding injury are better with pepper spray as your means of defense rather than a gun. It is recommended you get the larger canisters -- 8 ounces or more, and carry them in a readily accessible holster. Keep in mind the spray is to be used in event of an attack only. It is not to be used like insect repellant or to spray around a campsite to repel bears. There have been accounts of bears drawn to areas, after the fact, where pepper spray has been used. To learn more about bear spray and its use, search for “bear spray” on the Internet.
