my husband and I have had several bear encounters the best way to keep there's a way is to not keep any food out um however when camping a there came into our campsite and my husband just raised his voice and family said that they're gone now get out of here and there turn to run before he did he turned around and grab the cooler off of the picnic table when it hits the ground he ran off I still have the cooler to this day and still have the puncture marks from the bear on it so if there comes to close I would suggest just raise your voice and family tell the better go on now get out of here and usually he will run off
Here are some ideas that MIGHT work 1. Try to make yourself taller 2. Bring a weapon Ex: kitchen knife, or carve a stick to a knife 3. Climb a tree because bears don't know how to climb but first you must know how to climb (and your friends) 4. If all else fails and he hits you bit his nose or pull his tongue so he bits it or rip off his eyes. I hope this helps you don't die now you hear?
