So coming to your state as a visitor for fishing & hiking Mat-Su & Girdwood areas, I am prepared with bear defense items.
Wanted to ask anyone who ran across a bear or other predator that was not going to leave you alone -
does OC bear spray work better or worse than a handgun / shotgun ?
I am bringing bear sprays but they are heavy in addition to my 10mm Auto loaded with 220gr Buffalo Bore hardcast and 12ga shotgun w/ 1oz slugs.
Just wanted to know if I should pack that heavy ???
