    Just curious, what’s everyone do to discourage bears while on the trail? I currently carry a can of bear spray whenever i’m hiking in bear country, but am curious whether there are any other ideas/options.

    I’ve always known bear spray to be the best option – besides a gun. Bear spray is designed to keep some distance between you and the bear…. and also does a pretty good job of scaring away critters.

    If you’re trying to discourage bears outside of bear spray though, the best thing you can do it manage your food so they’re not attracted to the area.
