7 thoughts on “Bear Spray Requirement”

  1. When you already have 40-50lbs strapped to your back, adding another few pounds of ineffective bear spray isn’t something I’m interested in doing.

    How do they intend to enforce this rule, I’m wondering.

  2. No one with intelligence ventures into bear country here (Alaska) without bear spray AND a handgun. A .44 Mag is considered at the low end of the scale for bear defense, but then we have grizzlies. .454 Casull is common; the spray, when used, is a backup … or the defense of choice among bike-riders on Anchorage city trails. Many of us still carry a pistol, even on a bike.

  3. I’d guess that they just want the grizzly scat to smell nice and peppery.
