Ironically enough, I was on my way back from a backpacking excursion this morning and I encountered a large Brown Bear heading my direction on the trail I was using. I was armed with the 10mm and my can of UDAP at the time. I clanked my treking poles and yelled at him to let him know I was there and he stopped, looked, and turned around and galloped away. A short time later I saw him climb this mountain in like a minute when it would have taken me about an hour.

I have been charged by moose about 7 times but never by bears. I am glad this one was another non incident...

google bear flares most park and wild life agencies are supporting the use of this device if you have to kill an animal after deployment . it will be considered self defense Watch the video they cost forty bucks are safe and have many uses Im going to buy some for this years hunting season.
