 Bear Spray
Just curious what people have to say......

Do you carry it? Have you ever had to use it?

I don't carry it.

I'm not really afraid of bears in NH. All of the ones I've come across (and that would be a very small number) were more anxious to get away from me than vice versa.

Ofcourse, with my philosophy, you can only be wrong once.

Don't carry it. Like Jamie my half dozen encounters with bears have always ended with them running away and having no interest in me whatsoever so I don't even worry about it now. I might consider it if I did much bushwhacking, but I don't, so unless I start hiking with donuts in the pack or something ill take my chances.

I did however occasionally hike with a gun years ago if we were backcountry stealth camping in bear territory but never on day hikes or busy trails and never since I've had kids. Figured the noise might scare them away more than anything.

I live in a pretty wooded area with a couple of good sized black bears that walk through my yard. I don't bother them and they just walk thru not bothering me. When I go out in the early am, I just shuffle my feet to let them know I'm outside too, so I don't startle them. I'm more afraid of some of the people I've seen on the trail with ALL the wrong gear and the "I know about everything" attitudes. Those are the ones that get leary of. On another forum I asked about if anyone carried a gun, and I got crucified by alot of them. I carry neither bear spray or a gun. Just my .02
