I'm from that part of the country, Lots of bears in upper east Tennessee.

Not to change subjects but just yesterday I strapped on my pack with 55lbs in it. I hiked 4.5 miles on my property and at the end of my workout (when I was a little tired) I deployed my bear spray for the first time. I've been wearing it to get use to it as I want it on the front hip belt area. Careful to spray with the wind I deployed it a few times. Pretty impressed with it. Some actually got in my mouth and nose and I'm talking about a very small amount....just remnants in the air. It about gagged me! My eyes even blurred up some. I could't imagine getting a full hit with some of it.

I feel better about heading into Grizz country this sept.

Now get a fresh can before your trip.

Don’t forget the bells and whistles so authorities can identify the guilty bear if things go wrong.
