Ever wonder what the effect of “Bear Spray” actually is? What happens when you push the trigger on the can? How far does it actually go? What does it look like? What does a bear do when the spray hits it? How about what does it do after being sprayed?

Being bowhunter who began bearhunting back in the 70’s I’ve wondered about this. So when I saw the Youtube video “Park Ranger Uses Bear Spray On Bear in Yellowstone” I had to watch it.

The spraying and its results surprised me, and were not quite like I thought they might be. And I’m left wondering if when I was alone and way back in the thick bear woods I’d want to actually spray a bear if this is what the do.
