I carry "Guard Alaska" brand bear spray on the shoulder strap of my backpack on frequent hikes, also a bell and whistle. Have yet to see one here thankfully but I often clap my hands and shake the dinner bell. Just yesterday was checking out an old mine and there were 3 large turds inside and no TP haha.

What's the protocol on that one man ? Do you back out the mine slowly and carefully or run like hell ? :lol:

Don't go in past the turds....there isn't room to stand or turn around anyway

Hope OP hasn't had any more encounters
