Can anyone give any advice? should we be carrying this and if so where we can purchase. We are planning to do walks, definitely not long hikes and will stick to marked trails but have read that bears like the cleared trails. Any other tips on being bear smart would be welcome, there are just 2 of us, should we do guided walks or look to join larger groups? We are planning to go into Alaska so any issues on taking Bear spray across the border? I have looked through the forum and there seems to be conflicting info on this. Thanks everyone.
