In this post bushcraft expert Dale Collett shares tips on how to survive a bear attack. According to Dale it’s important to know that bears try to avoid people. They will attack if they feel like they are being threatened, defending their territory, or happen to be feeding off some animal they are eating.
If you happen to be caught in one of these situations you could be in trouble.
Below are some great tips for surviving a bear attack. Make sure to watch the video below about how to survive a bear attack.
First thing you need to know is that bears will attack to protect their cubs. One of the best ways to prevent an attack is to make noise as you are walking through any area where bears may be. The bear needs to know you’re coming, and most of the time the bear will try and get out of your way.
You can sing as you’re walking, or call out things. Everyone has heard of cow bells but how many of you have heard of bear bells. Some experienced survivalists wear bells that are to make noise that will let bears know you are around and make the bear leave your area.
If you are confronted by a bear the seems aggressive Dale recommends that you just stop. An interesting note is that you need to know what kind of bear is potentially going to attack. Grizzly bears are much more vicious than black bears and as you’ll find out in the video you need to handle each one differently.
