Going to Montana hiking and was gonna bring picrel in case of bears (I’m a bong so I don’t own a gun) Can I transport this at all without having a finger shoved up my ass?

    Not sure how things work on the Bongland side but in America you could enter Montana with a trunk full of AR-15s, 100-round drum mags, body armor, tannerite explosives etc without raising eyebrows or violating any laws. As long as you don't put it in your carry on you're good. I've flown with guns in my checked bag before. Also, you should of course get some bear spray once you get there too.

      Yeah I’ll get bear spray of course but is that actually effective?? I’ve heard horror stories of bears just tanking it

        you're worried about bear spray not being effective while your plan is to get into a knife fight with it.

            Yeah. Large bear paws probably typed that post

            EVERY single one? Hmm. Very dubious claim.

            This is a great thread and I would pay OP bitcoin to watch him fight a bear with a knife.

        It's pretty effective (based on statistics, videos I've seen, anecdotes etc). Yeah it fails every once in a while but guns fail at a similar rate. Short of carrying a long gun, bear spray backed up by a 10mm or a .44 mag would be your best bet but I guess if you can't acquire a gun bear spray + knife is your second-best realistic option. I suppose a spear-type weapon (I've seen hiking staffs with knife attachments at the end) would be even better than a plain knife but that seems a bit LARPy to me.

          A spear would be 100x better than a knife. Once you are in knife range of a bear it’s already over for you. A gun is better obviously but a spear might give you an actual fighting chance. I think it goes gun>bear spray>spear>anything else just run away or play dead because you are fucked if it comes to a fight

        It's effective in the right circumstance. But lets say you're hiking in the afternoon, lots of wind swirling around in the mountains, and a bear comes up. That wind will fuck you if all you have is bear spray. Better safe than sorry. Pack a firearm.

    Probably if you check the bag, no if you try to bring it in a carry on. They made me throw out my expensive pocket knife I forgot was in suitcase when I tried to carry it on one time. Still butthurt about it. I love how they give you the option to leave and mail it somewhere. Yeah fuckhead TSA member I’m going to miss my flight to attempt to mail my knife instead of have to throw it out. Probably my own fault but fuck I hate that ultimatum they give you when they know it’s not even a real option.

    How would it work if a foreigner tried to buy a firearm in bear country? Would it just not be possible or would some cash do it?

    Been hiking in Canada before and was way too tense about ursine upsets to enjoy it. Thinking about USA soon but would want a gun for protection against bear.

    I know how to use rifles for deer but that’s different

      Buying a gun from Bubba, sure. Buying a gun at a gun store, no, there's some legal exceptions, I think, for example, if you have a valid US visa and a hunting permit.

    you cannot and should not fight a bear with a knife

    if you are concerned (you can just walk away from most bear encounters), you can bring bear spray

    you are unreasonably worried about bear encounters, they aren't a big deal in the continental USA, not even montana

      This is also true. Also the most annoying thing about bears is that they're becoming urbanized wildlife now and breaking into buildings and cars tying to get food in there.

      Thanks anon. I think I’m worried because we don’t have bears in the uk and I’ve never seen one so I imagine they’re fucking everywhere in Montana

        There's a pretty incredible concentration of them in MT relative to other states. If you're in the mountains north of Helena you can be pretty sure some brown fuzzies are watching you constantly; you'll see their poops. Wear a bell and/or get in the habit of singing songs while you're hiking; that's probably the most effective way to avoid death. I sang ABBA songs on repeat for a good 200 miles of the CDT. If you start to get the gut feeling that something ain't right, and the hairs on the back of your neck stand up, take that instinct seriously, it's been fine-tuned for millions of years.

      Can you just walk away from mountain lions too?

        Yes, they're almost always incredibly shy animals.

        yeah buts its more effective with them to stand your ground and act like a cunt
        if you turn your back on a cougar its instincts to treat you like prey might surge
        they don't want to fight something acting belligerent, mountain lions are ambush predators so if they lose the element of surprise they turn into pussies

    if you are in an area with lots of bear activity, you bring something to make noise on the trail

    some small bells attached to your bag, or if you are sure you are alone you can bring a bluetooth speaker and play some of your tunes

    bears are only really dangerous when they are surprised, if you let them know you are coming they will be fine and likely move away before you even see them

    if you are thru hiking and camping places with bears, then you need a bear-proof container for your food so they can't smell it or get into it, and keep it away from your tent during the night

    make sure you clean your utensils really well and don't leave any food out

    bears don't want to eat you, they just want easy food so they will go for stuff left out which can be very startling if you wake up in the morning and see a fat ass bear chowing down out of your cooler (this has happened to me)

    if you do have a situation like that just remain cool and collected and move away from the animal, don't try to circle around it, talk to it calmy to let it know you're there, just wait for it to finish and move on

    don't leave food especially meat inside of anything you don't want potentially destroyed

      Also avoid areas with bears in them if possible. It’s easy to know which areas these are by spotting bear poop. If you don’t know what that looks like, it’s the poop with lots of small bells in it.

    Leave it at home and buy one here. And some bear spray.

    Really, I wouldn't want to fight a grizzly with a knife, but it's better than nothing.
