So I had a really good discussion with Dr.Tom Smith of BYU. He's a bear biologist and very well respected in those circles. He had some very good advice for dealing with bears. He has some good videos on youtube as well. He is a big advocate for bear spray and fences. He did share some interesting info. Such as bears are actually attracted to pepper spray. The one that shocked me the most was he said that they are also attracted to human urine. He's seen lots of evidence to support this and does not recommend using it around your campsite. Anyway, here is the link to video if you guys want to watch it. Enjoy.
