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.

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.

    • If i was them and got a offer of 100ml for Kane id snap City hand off. Kane ankles are fucked. They could nab Calvert Lewin and still have money for another midfielder
    • Yes, because no-one knows about Kane's qualities, and are aggressively monitoring him at the Euros to see what the fuss is all about.   There is no chance in hell his "best days are behind him"
    • The reason Spurs have not approached Rafa, I reckon, is because of his outspoken character, not afraid to voice his displeasure at the owners, whether about money or other political matters within the club.   Levy took a huge chance on hiring Mourinho with the prospect of him winning one of the cups to tide them over. But it became so toxic and unworkable that just days before they were about to play the final, he pulled the trigger, as it would likely have locked Mourinho in further, along with a potential trophy bonus, so it was probably the lesser of two evils as he saw it. Added to that was the failure to get a top 4 place, which would have been a higher priority than either of the domestic cups.   Now they have to walk a very tight line between somebody compliant and the ability to get them to the CL which they absolutely need given the massive debt they have to pay off for their stadium. Rafa would certainly be their best bet on the latter, but would the former be a price they're willing to pay?
    • Thats makes sense for Real Bring him back for free sell Isco/Assensio to free wages and fee and sell Rodriguez a year later
    • It wouldn't be a shock if he was allowed a free if ancelotti left.
