My fiance is an outdoor type of individual. Whenever possible or at the very least every month he schedules a hiking getaway with his friends or his coworkers.
Worried for his safety from wild animal attacks while outdoor camping I purchased him a Bear Mace that I stumbled on while shopping on the internet. I have read all about bear sprays from web based ads and just how theyve saved the lives of many outdoorsmen.
Hikers that go into national forests that are normally the natural home of bears are urged to take bear pepper spray along with them. Having one of those handy whenever camping out or hiking can lower the number of fatalities due to bear attacks. Likewise the amount of bears killed as an act of self-defense is also reduced.
Bear repellents when sprayed on a bear make it leave instead of inciting it to attack as a type of defense against the person.
As self-defense weapons bear sprays produce short term incapacitating effects only thus no environmental regulation is being violated. The bear can still go back to its group once the repellents effects have faded away.
I have found out however that bear pepper spray shouldnt be utilized on another person. I am a little bit concerned about this actually since my fiance as well as his pals become a little rowdy occasionally.
The Mace Bear Repellent Spray that I bought for my fiance can spray about 30 feet a safe enough length between the bear and my partner. It can be utilized only once since the container becomes empty at about 5.4 seconds.
Right now I have purchased 2 more sprays as reserves. I can just hope that a bear attack never happens but when it does then at least let my fiance remember that he has a Bear Mace in his belt pack. After all it is always alertness and also common sense that help save someone in the end.
