The Bear Stick is a 48″-50″ hiking stick which very quickly becomes a defensive weapon in the case of an attack by a bear, cougar, dog, etc. Embedded in the shaft is a 6″-8″ ardox spike that can be used to defend against an animal attack.

Many individuals are apprehensive about hiking (especially in ‘bear country’) for fear of being confronted by these large, sometimes aggressive animals. What do you do in this situation?

But, it is a far cry better than a traditional hiking stick where prodding, clubbing and beating is the only defence between you and an aggressive animal. (Or, attempting to fight a bear hand-to-hand!)
