So you're walking along the hiking trail in your favorite National Park, when out of nowhere a bigfoot comes crashing through the bushes! What do you do? How do you defend yourself from such a powerful beast? Ok, unlikely that you're going to be attacked by a bigfoot, but there are other wild animals out there you do have to worry about while squatching.
We all know that Squatchin can take you into the woods; sometimes really deep into the woods. Into areas where not only Sasquatch live, but wild animals such as bears and mountain lions call home.

Now, many people will say that a gun is your best choice of defense against a big animal. And sometimes that may very well be the case; but what kind of caliber would you need to take down a full-grown grizzly? A gun could be as effective as an Air Horn in some cases. Now, if you are going to take a gun into the field, you should be sure to check your local ordinances so that you know the legal implications of being armed in your area.
