Carry bear spray with you at all times on the trail, and know how to use it. Bear spray can be effective deterrent when used properly. Be aware that wind, spray distance, rain, freezing temperatures and product shelf life can all influence its effectiveness. Familiarize yourself with the proper use of bear spray (including the manufacturer’s specific instructions) and keep it readily accessible.
