There are several natural events that, for whatever reason, engage our survival instincts at a primal level.

Tornadoes, poisonous snakes, and, yes, bear attacks all just seem to get something going in our prepper brains.

I don’t know about you, but I have dreams about dealing with these things… I wouldn’t really call them nightmares, because they’re so fascinating and primal.

To put things into perspective, you’ll most likely never have to deal with an angry bear in your lifetime. Even if you live in “bear country,” the chances that you’ll be attacked are slim to none…

But that doesn’t mean it’s not important to know how to deal with a bear attack. In the spirit of self-reliance, it’s better to know and not use, than to need and not have the basic information.

  1. As a wildlife photographer, I have found cameras chase away bears.(kidding) I use a very strong telephoto lens.
    Mostly stay calm and in a non-threatening way, slowly back away.
    Always have bear spray with you, in case. If you don’t startle them or corner them, most of the time they will leave you alone.
    In the rare case they don’t, bear spray.

  2. Some say to wear small bells to avoid startling the bears. As you say pepper spray often works.

    Do you know how to identify grizzly scat? It has small bells and smells like pepper.

    I have seen a bear tear the top of a car open when the people inside teased it with food.

    In grizzly country what works is a rifle or shotgun with slugs. A 44 magnum might do the job but if you have have a pistol a 50 caliber Desert Eagle is the way to go.

    After a bear has been shot hunters have found some of the bullets were caught in the fur and had never even reached the skin. Grizzlies or Kodiak bears (same thing different name) can be concealed in tall grass. What a surprise.
