You can never be too prepared for bear country.
Your comprehensive bear safety plan should include items that…
Make bear spray more accessible.
The various Frontiersman® Bear Spray holsters help ensure your spray is at the ready when you need it most. Choose from a chest holster, belt holster, or even a bike holster. Frontiersman Bear Spray holsters don’t have cumbersome straps (which can cost precious seconds) or Velcro closures, which can create an aggravating sound and cause the bear to charge.
Contain food odors.
Meeting U.S. Forest Service specifications for use in national parks and areas requiring food storage, the Frontiersman Bear Safe helps prevent you from drawing bears to your campsite with food odors. Pair the bear resistant food container with its bright orange Frontiersman Bear Safe Carrying Bag for maximum visibility.
Signal to animals that there’s a human in the area.
The National Park Service states that “not surprising bears is [one] of the most important things you can do” to reduce your risk of encountering a bear. Noise-making devices—such as bear bells or bear horns—help make bears in your vicinity well aware that there’s a human in their midst, and gives them a chance to leave the area before stumbling upon an encounter that could trigger defensive behavior. The SABRE Sport & Safety Horn is audible up to ½ mile (805 m) away and can also call for help in emergencies.
Be prepared for bear country. Frontiersman: When only the best will do!
