    I was thinking the same from his description of the bear's behavior.

    I can’t imagine venturing in the wilds without my light and knife, but if I am down to fighting off a grizzly with my Spyderco, I have seriously screwed up.

    Or, you are visiting Canada.

    We could isolate Russia totally from the world and maybe they could apply for membership after 2000 years.

    This is what makes me reluctant to visit Canada for backcountry activities.

    Been there hiking around grizzly bears in the Yukon, clutching my bear spray and GG&G axe. Not looking to repeat that any time soon.

    If you were in Stewart, you could just holler for help from the American side.

    Bear spray worked, sort of....

    Smith was hiking alone in steep, moderately heavy timber when the attack occurred. He was unaware of the bear until it made contact with him. During the encounter, the bear bit Smith’s bear spray holstered on his hip, rupturing the canister and presumably causing the bear to break off the attack.
