  1. What if you do everything right:
    – Make noise while hiking
    – Secure all smellables in a bear proof canister, and then secure the canister appropriately (preferably on a cable or in a bear box)
    – If you start to have an adverse encounter, make appear yourself bigger and withdraw while making noise
    – Spray the bear if it charges you or gets too close for comfort

    What if you do all that and it still gnaws on you? Would one then be justified discharging a firearm and utilizing deadly force on the animal?
