bear spray practice

In the video you'll see Bill and I  have a go at bear spray training using a practice water canister. The practice canister works just like the real thing. We're glad we practiced! I sure hope we don't get in a situation where we have to use the spray for real.

Thank you for watching.

In the video we are using Frontiersman Bear Attack Deterrent Inert Training Unit (Water Practice Canister), which is available at Amazon at the following link: The practice spray contains water, so it is a safe way to become familiar with the bear spray canister, safety clip and trigger to see how they work.

While we are traveling in bear country we will each have a canister of bear spray in a holster on our belts. We will have it in the rooftop tent with us too. Below are the particulars about the bear spray we have chosen, and a link to it on Amazon, so you may learn more and read the reviews.
