Tip #43 From Hiker Mike: Don’t eat pizza in your tent.
No, seriously, it could save your life! Here are a few more bear safety tips for your next hiking trip.
- Always have bear deterrent pepper spray in its holster ready for immediate use. Don’t bury it in your pack.
- If a grizzly makes contact with you, play dead. Curl up into a ball with your knees tucked into your stomach and your hands laced around the back of your neck. Leave your pack on to protect your back.
- If a black bear makes contact with you, fight back.
- Store your food in airtight or bear-proof containers and never cook or store food in or near your tent.
