awesome and sad . next time buy a bear spray
He said he had spray -- but retreating worked. A firearm can certainly be helpful in a pinch, too, but the stats all point to spray being more effective (and obviously less destructive). Imprecise aim with a handgun (very common with 500-1000 pounds of cranky grizzly bearing down on you) is a good way to get yourself dead; imprecise aim with spray can still at least get you left alone.
The most effective tool, though, is a brain, which Kane clearly kept squarely on his shoulders.
Great sequence, and a hell of a story!
