Without the bear spray, one or both of us would have been seriously injured…
I wanted to thank you for making UDAP bear spray. My husband and I had an encounter with a male grizzly bear last fall. Without the bear spray, one or both of us would have been seriously injured. We were fishing at Brooks Lake above Dubois, WY. We were only a 15 minute walk from our vehicle and could see the parking lot from our fishing spot. We had been fishing a point out on the lake for about an hour when we notice the willows moving. Then a bear’s head popped out. We backed up slowly, removed the safety from our spray and didn’t make eye contact with the bear. He went back into the willows and we began packing up our gear. All of a sudden he popped up behind me and stood up on his rear legs. He began making a huffing sound. Without thinking I raised my arm and sprayed a good shot of UDAP. He dropped to the ground and crawled off. We were able to make it safely back to our vehicle and watched for him to appear out of the willows. He walked around for a few seconds then jumped onto the lake and started to swim. I wanted to let people know the spray works and is easy to use. I will always take it with me when I am in bear country. Thanks for making this product. Without it I would never feel safe going back to Brooks Lake.
