Growing up in Freeport instills in anybody a unique love for the outdoors. My high school buddies and I would always enjoy our summer months in the different campgrounds dotted around our place. Now nearly 20 years later my best pals and I still spend one week every summer camping and hunting together.
This year we plan to get our game up and visit Alaska for our once-a-year summer season get-together. My buddies have been on enough outdoor journeys to be aware of the risks in the outdoors though. Thats the reason why we have decided to add some pepper spray for bears to our substantial collection of security equipment.
A bear repellent is a kind of pepper spray formulated exclusively for bears. As such defense sprays made for human beings wont work against bears. This is also true for the utilization of bear sprays on human beings.
Bear pepper spray reduces the occurrence of irreversible injury or death among both the human beings and bears. It deals a non-lethal but temporarily incapacitating impact on the bear upon contact with the skin.
The defense spray effects permit the human to get away to safety and the bear to rejoin its population. As for the bear the moment these effects fade away it endures no lasting injury.
While searching the net I discovered a couple of bear sprays which we could add to our packs for Alaska. The initial one was a Mace bear repellent spray. It is a magnum fogger that can spray in a range as far as 30 feet. The version I am looking to get contains 260 grams which it can empty within 5.4 seconds.
The other one was a Guard Alaska ultra hot bear repellent. It is preferred by the Alaska Science and Technology Foundation. This particular bear pepper spray is the only one listed in the EPA being a repellent for all bear kinds.
Im certain that we is going to have tons of fun and also enjoyment as soon as we set off to Alaska this summer. Though ready I really hope we never find the need to use our pepper spray for bears throughout our time there.
