Bears and guns
Park service just noted a study of hundreds of bear encounters in and out of parks, Bear spray is effective over 90% of the time
long guns are effective 83% of the time
and pistols less than 70%
that saying the time I spent in Alaska and in camps around Yellowstone a 12 ga slug gun with the first round #2 and followed by 550 gr. slugs was the weapon of choice. Bear spray is fatal to neither party, you or the bear. One of the last grizzly/ bow hunter encounters in Northern Idaho the guy died, his buddy shot him with a large calibre hand gun. That probably feels pretty good for the rest of your life.
motorcycles are like fly rods, you need way more than one.
