Hello everyone, long time reader first time poster.
I live in Juneau and have been looking into bear fences. While cruising this site I noticed Ice Bear Alarms and have been interested in getting a bear fence. I am curious if anyone is using one and what their overall satisfaction has been? An Ice Bear fence is different in that it is a mechanical device, not electrical, that fires 12 gauge blanks to scare the bear/warn the tent inhabitants. It seems to me that this would be more beneficial than just shocking the bear, but I have been wrong before and thought I'd ask your opinions.
