While hunting for deer opening day of 2015 my father and I had the “opportunity” to meet a grizzly up close and personal. We both had our Counter Assault Bear Spray and our rifles but we didn’t have to use either. Fortunately we were making enough noise that he knew we were there long before we saw him and after a short stand off, where he showed us he was the boss, he headed the other way and so did we.
Amazingly I wasn’t afraid. I had total confidence in Counter Assault Bear Deterrent because I had been trained how to use it and had practiced with a Training Canister so I knew if I needed to use it I could do it. Can’t say my heart wasn’t racing but I was confident I would be okay. I even had the time and composure to snap a picture as he walked away.
