If you're in a group, stay together. You'll look larger and that could keep the bear from charging. Often bears will bluff a charge, meaning they will rush toward you and then stop in close proximity to your position. It's a warning to back off. Heed the warning. Back off. Slowly. But should the worst happen and the bear attacks, reach for your bear pepper spray.

Play dead if you have no escape options. Curl up, face down and avoid eye contact with the bear. Use pepper spray and kick it.
