While extreamly rare, would pepper spray ward off a black bear attack. I've read a black bear means business when he charges.

    If it works on griz, should work on blacks

    Pepper spray works on black bears make sure you have a spray that shoots a good distance at least 20 feet and hit the bear in the eyes. If you need to use it in order to discourage a bear in camp move your camp after use. The smell of pepper spray actually attracts food seeking bears.
    Black bears are usually intimidated by an aggressive approach I have chased many out of camp by yelling and / or banging pots. Concentrate your efforts on a clean camp with food hung in a proper “bear bag’. That will eliminate most close bear encounters.

    Yes, most of the time it is extremely effective against black bears and grizzilys alike. Most often though when a black bear or any bear for that matter charges it is usually a bluff. Worst case senerio if it dosen't work shoot it!

    I've been bluff charged, while backpacking I cam around a corner and inadvertanatly got between a Sow and her Cub(who went up the tree next to me.) All I had was my leatherman, so if it wasn't a bluff I didn't stand a chance. It's a little unnerving but my understanding from the bear hunters I hunt with and from experience they will most often bluff.

    if it will stop the larger more aggressive grizzly it will stop a black bear. black bears do bluff charge, i was charged 2 years ago grouse hunting by myself on an old logging road. i had rounded a 90 degree bend when a small black bear(150-175 lbs)walked onto the road let out a deep WHOOOF and charged within 15 yards of me, stopped, turned and ran back into the heavier brush at the road side. my hunt ended early that day....

    there is a video of a black bear bluff charge.
    I was chased by mother black bear once. Its a long storie she only chased me about 150 yards down hill I had no gun. I agree with Big O If your in bear country dont leave home without it & im not talking about pepper spray safty first!!!!! Of course if thats all you got its better then nothing thats for sure.

    It works(sometimes) on grizzlys. Had a budd that was a bear guide in Alaska, that told me the best thing to stop a bear in it's tracks is a 12ga. slug.
    Sorry I could'nt help more.
