Bears

Any tracker or backcountry outfitter worth his weight in peppered bell dropings will tell you never, with the key word being NEVER go into any kind of backcountry situation without the proper equipment, that includes what ever type of fire power you feel comfortable with. By the way, Ive seen alot more spooked bull moose than I have bear, point being, you want something that will stop ALL problems that might arise. besides, pepper is a spice, you dont want the bear to actually LIKE what he's eating, do you? I opt for the gun, everytime
