Be prepared! According to Montana’s Daily Inter Lake, Dan Kotter encounter and deterred a charging grizzly bear while in the midst of a research project. Kotter, hiking alone, heard rustling in the brush of what he thought was a bear cub. Instead, however, a large bear came out displaying signs of aggression.
Kotter, with his bear spray in hand, slowly backing away managed to trip on some brush and fall to the ground. Kotter recalled the bear stepping on his thigh. At that moment he rolled away and fired off his protective bear spray. According to Kotter the incident is very blurry but the spray definitely helped save his life.

Bear spray is a proven tool recommended and used by wildlife professionals across North America and FRONTIERSMAN is the only brand with the industry maximum, 35 foot range!
