Keep a clean site and they won’t bother you.

So pack your food away in your car or hang it in a bear proof container in a tree, don’t burn paper plates with food on it in the campfire and leave nothing out. 
 

It’s very rare a bear will track and attack you but it does happen occasionally. If I go hiking I carry bear spray. I’ve never encounter a bear in foot in the woods. 
 

I have seen polar bears when I lived in Nunavut but from a safe distance.

They use these to trap the trouble bears.

 

i had one neat campsite a couple of years ago and was going to put a can of Heineken in it and me inside but then realized, luckily, that I would end up trapped in it. 
 

You’re more likely to get bit by a raccoon than a bear .

Bear spray? If I'm camping in bear country I want an AW50 Sniper Rifle, a Colt M16A2 Assault Rifle and a Panzer division with me. Fucking bear spray.

You're not camping in Louisville pal - this is the woods, they all know you're there.

I reckon you could take a polar bear in hand to hand combat, then laugh over it with a can of Heineken

If you don't think there's much chance of talking about the situation within reason, they reckon it's best to play dead and hopefully they'll go away, don't say shoo.

Hey, when it's Whopper Wednesday you need to be close, plus if you need a shite after 10am they've cleaned the toilets.

I've been struggling to fall asleep so I listened to some YouTube videos to help me doze off  in the Pacific Northwest they have 9 foot tall sasquatch that just walk into camps, stomp about and then fuck off.  So brazen yet never been found or caught. I couldnt be doing with it.

Isn't it true that the reason you're not supposed to turn your back on a bear is because they're too thick to know they're big? I think that's boss.

Am I the only one who would pity the bear that dared take on NP?

 

It would be like this.

You never turn your back because if it’s a predatory bear it will charge after you, or a bear defending a food source it will chase after you.

Some of the campsites I go they will hand out refresher pamphlets and come by and make sure your campsite is clean if there had been a bear nearby or hanging around.

 

Some of the campsites Stig frequents warn you about a bare behind.
