    OK, Guys. I'm learning here. Start with bear spray and bells because that would also be lighter than a shotgun.

    However, I'm now REALLY worried about the unicorn covered with glitter. That would really mess up the wildlife images if I had to use flash for fill purposes.

    However, I really do appreciate everyone's sage advice.

    Bear spray is what I was referring to. Did not see the previous post and couldn't think of what it was called. Duh. I agree with less lethal spray and then
    slug or buckshot if you go that way.

    I have no experience shooting bears with bean bags nor do most people, but i have see (on television) in areas like Yellowstone they will shoot bears with bean bag rounds to scare them away and make them afraid of humans. this is after they were caught in a populated area and being set free away from people. it looked very effective.

    here is a similar instance where a bear is shot with a bean bag. http://youtu.be/fsfJI-8HFOA

    Like most things martial...mission drives equipment. Trained individuals, with lethally armed backup standing by, shooting a trash eating bear to scare it away is not the same as using bean bags to deal with an unexpected attack by a bear whilst out enjoying nature.
