- I missed this thread or would have responded earlier as we lived out west for over a decade. Couple of thoughts since you are already hooked up with gear
Oh wait, I have to brag - these are our binos & we love em! so inexpensive we both have a pair!

Now, on to Bear Spray. There is only one out there that is EPA approved to actually stop a bear in its tracks and that is Counter Attack (2% Capicsum) Like the B.C. sign says, all Pepper Spray will do in some cases is act as a appetizer for the soon to be dinner LOL!
Amazon has some here - reminds me I need to check the epireation date on our bottle
Bear Spray good news! Bear sprays were actually developed for the more aggressive Grizzly Bears. Most Black Bears (what you will find in the parks) are really not interested in attacking you - they, like Yogie Bear of cartoon Fame are more interested in what is in your pick-a-nick basket
So, practice good anti-bear foraging: no food left outside, all garbage in a bear proof trash can AWAY from camp. Oh and after you grill that delicious T-Bone steak...clean the grill and the grease trap!
Noticed you also picked up a handgun. Friendly piece of advice - tests have shown that counter attack works better than a handgun (um, unless you picked up a Desert Eagle with AP rounds
