    I know how to fight agiasnt my Dachshund dog very well lol. I can just grab him and put him on his back if he ever gets violent with my other dog. Other than that fighting animals can be dangerous especially if its a bear, elephant, shark, tiger.

    When camping, also be sure to store all food (especially meat and fish) safely inside your tent. Maybe inside your sleeping bag, just to be safe. You wouldn't want those bears to get it!

    For sure - and if you get around back of either one during an attack, you're better off trying to get away than grapple it.

    Now, to continue with the overall retardedness of this thread, here are two bear vs. man grappling vids:

    Another important thing with bear survival is identifying the type of bear that is in your area. Black bears are not necessarily black all the time, but they are a smaller bear compared to the Grizzly bear. The Grizzly bear also has a distinctive shoulder hump in which you can use for quick identification. The tracks between the two species are different as well...


    So then your tactics are thus, if it is a black bear make yourself look as large as possible while making a lot of noise and DO NOT play dead or else you'll find yourself being dragged off into the underbrush.

    Grizzly's are somewhat similar, make yourself seem bigger than you are and make a lot of noise. However if they do attack DO play dead, curl up into a ball and protect your head and neck.

    The bell thing seems like a good idea if you're alone, just so you don't surprise a bear. In a group people would probably get irritated and tell you to take it off, but groups make enough noise anyway.

    I've heard how the gun ban in national parks might be relaxed, though personally I'm not sure I like the idea.

    I vaguely recall seeing an old woodcut of an armored knight squaring off against a bear. The armor was studded with spikes and the knight was also holding a sword and dagger.

    Interesting article on Bestiarii, Roman gladiators who specialized in fighting animals: http://news.softpedia.com/news/Peopl...as-52695.shtml

    This thread is incredibly stupid, but if we're exchanging bear data, bears have the keenest sense of smell of any mammal in N. America. However, they also have very poor vision. So stay still if you're upwind. The main thing to do is NEVER come between a mother bear and her cubs. You will probably die, even if you don't realize what's happening.

    Bears can run faster than humans as has been mentioned before. You're better off yelling and screaming if you think you're done for, preferably with a big stick. Playing dead has worked for a few people who have been attacked. If a bear is circling around you at a distance you're being stalked.

    Lastly, while a person could probably RNC a black bear, I doubt even a large human could get their arms in a RNC around a grizzly's neck. Their necks are simply too big.

    Most of the time though, they'll leave you alone or even run away. I accidentally blundered into a fairly large black bear on a trail here a couple of years ago (like 5 feet away from us), and I just walked away slowly and kept in view the whole time. It ignored us, and continued on it's way. Your biggest worry is running into a mother with cubs - things can get hectic if momma bear sees you as threat.
    did you poop your pants? =p

    The two things to use against bears are pepper spray and bells. Yes, small bells tied to your pants cuffs will make an annoying jingling noise that keeps bears away.

    It is also good to know the two types of bears commonly found in North America. The presence of the black bear, which is relatively small, can be detected by its spoor, which smells like garbage. Its cousin, the larger brown bear, can be identified by its spoor as well. It jingles and smells like pepper.

    Bears are so bad ass, they even own the lion....A Bear's fighting technique is pretty awsome, As soon as I see one I am walking away very slowly, I dont want to run so it would get any attention from me, unless I see it run at me, I would do my best to grab a near stick or weapon around, or rear naked choke,

    when ever I go hiking or camping I am bringing a Knife and hunting rifle, lol
