At this point, we’ve all heard a whole load about staying safe around bears. Hopefully, if you’re heading into bear country, you know to stay calm and keep plenty of distance between yourself and the predator. You also probably know to carry bear spray when moving around in bear territory. But if a bear were to actually charge you, would you know how to use the spray?

Be Bear Aware, first of all, is a great resource for bear safety and other bear information. Make sure to check out their website if you want to hear more about using bear spray or if you’re interested in getting involved with the campaign.

When you purchase your first can of bear spray, give this video a watch to make sure you actually understand how you use the defense device.
