Bear encounters can go from curious to aggressive in seconds.
Fenton, MO (PRWEB) April 14, 2014
After the long winter, outdoor enthusiasts are looking forward to spring activities. Bears (grizzly and black) will also be coming from hibernation around the same time. It is important for people to be prepared for encounters when enjoying bear country.
Bear encounters can go from curious to aggressive in seconds. Charging bears can cover over 30 feet per second. A park ranger at Denali National Park and Preserve clocked a grizzly running 41 miles per hour. Frontiersman has a variety of products that deter bears and keep people safe.
The Frontiersman Bear Bell alerts bears of your presence and reduces the likelihood of a charge or attack. The Frontiersman Bear Bell can easily attach to a backpack, belt, saddle or shoes. The Bear Bell is not a replacement for bear spray, which has been repeatedly proven effective at deterring charging bears. The Frontiersman Bear Bell is available in black, red, blue, green and yellow. MSRP is $4.99 and can be purchased at most major outdoor retailers or online.
Frontiersman also offers a Bear Safe, that is an ideal companion to Frontiersman bear spray. By restricting access to food, people can reduce the likelihood bears enter their camp. This tough storage barrel is eight inches in diameter and ten inches high and weighs 35.27 oz. It meets U.S. Forest Service specifications for use in national parks and areas requiring food storage. A convenient carrying bag is available featuring adjustable, nylon straps. Weight: 2.99 oz. MSRP for the safe is $69.99 and $15.99 for the carrying bag.
frontiersman bear spray is a 9.2 oz canister that fires 35 feet, up to 15 feet further than other bear sprays. The dual propellant system delivers approximately two ounces per one-second burst – up to 84% more stopping power.
Frontiersman has been evaluated and approved by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The EPA has determined that Bear Attack Deterrent Sprays must contain at least 1% Capsaicin and Related Capsaicinoids (CRC) and no more than 2% CRC. CRC is the heat bearing and pain-producing element in Bear Attack Deterrent Sprays. Frontiersman contains the maximum strength allowed by the EPA.
To prevent accidental discharge, FRONTIERSMAN features a glow-in-the-dark safety wedge. The safety wedge also makes it easier to locate the canister at night. Frontiersman is available at most major outdoor retailers or online. MSRP is $45.99-$59.99.
