    This is a great video and solid info … I’ve seen close to 20 bears over the years (only one Griz Sow and Cub … all the rest were black bears) and have been bluff charged once. Never had a bad encounter and never had to pull the pin on my bear spray.

    While I’m SO over anything to do with bears in the backcountry this actually hit every point in order.

    It never ceases to amaze me how so many people are so clueless when it comes to bears. The media sensationalizes encounters and because so many choose belief over fact, I think it keeps a lot of people out of nature. They prefer fear to knowledge I guess.

    And thanks for at least mentioning that backpackers dig seeing bears. I’ve seen dozens and it’s always a cool experience.
