Agree. The last 100 years of documented attacks and defense with a firearm indicates it’s doable in a predatory attack though. Doing everything “right”…. it’s still a wild unpredictable animal. We’ll have spray, know how to use it, and be armed too.I've lived next to grizzly bears most of my life. They really don't want to eat you. The most danger is hiking and surprising a sow with cubs. Unholster your bear spray, talk to the bear and slowly back away. As far as camping goes, keep a clean camp and hang your food bag at least 15 feet off the ground. If you are in a national park, GNP for instance, they have new rules for campers every year. One year bear proof coolers can be left out, next year, they are coolers and must be stored. Find out the rules where you are and do your best to comply. You are way more at risk walking the streets in the city than camping in the mountains and getting eaten by a bear. BTW your gun is way better protection against the two legged varmints than it is against a bear. Get the giant size bear spray and keep it handy, not in your backpack. Fear the people, enjoy the bears.
