    Bear spray works I guess but make sure you know which way the wind is blowing.

    Lead doesn't get blown back into your face by wind!

    Yes inclement weather no doubt hinders its use but wouldn't rely on it regardless. There is just too much evidence of bear spray failures resulting in many maulings & some deaths.
    Probably it's better than playing dead if charged/attacked by a grizz.

    It may stop a curious bear then it may not.
    More examples of using bear spray & what to expect.


    Ranger sprays bears-throwing rocks worked better.

Never seen a grizz before. Talking to hunting buddies at work it seems like everyone has a grizzly story lol. Do you guys carry bear spray or just rely on your rifle?
    When ever I go into the bush, I'm armed.
    My bear spray always contains lead.
