As an addendum. Making sure you're not spraying upwind is important too.The issue is that anything that turns to run is food according to wolves. Stand your ground. Get up a tree is fine but, don't turn your back on them to run for a tree. Retreat facing them always. If your going somewhere that they are known to be, carry bear mace with you. A small can of pepper spray is useless. Bear spray shoots a cone of spray to about 35 feet. Its been very effective on mountain lions and coyotes out here.
The law. Walking around with a gun can get you shot fast. You need a permit to move handguns up here, and that is to and from the range only.I got a better question. Why go anywhere with out a firearm?
I'm banned from the US because I woke up a CBP officer at the ambassador bridge at like 3am. cause I took a left instead of a right in Windsor and drove back into the US by accident, after waking them up my first comments were, is this Canada? (this was after driving to just south of Veracruz state and back from Ontario through the US and back) I also lost my license plate light in mexico and got cited for not having it after almost getting arrested for being a vegetarian at the border and fleeing the scene... (joke at that part sort of.. more for me than the Texans I'm sure), Ohio, Illinois and Detroit also had some close calls. (just a note I did attempt to replace the bulb but the town I stopped in at didn't have anyone who could identify the correct bulb, and it may have been the weekend and I was in a hurry to get back to Canada..)Have you ever thought about moving to the US? I've been to Canada I thought it was realy nice but I had no idea the laws were so opressive.
Yeah hopefully, even Americans down there are drug dealers. But I have to say that I know of atleast two supposed drug dealers one taking a carload of pot over and the other told to lie by Americans who wanted to party with him in California were both detained... (I suspect one may have been a government agent though very American, he spoke suburbian ebonics.... Lots of em were super American because they lived there all their lives, but I dunno) although no idea what happened to them, maybe they were kept...? Plenty of Mexicans in San Mateo but most are just laborers. It seems most get 'returned' from the point they are taken in, generally only people arrested in the US get sent to San Mateo, most have a run in with the law which ends up complicating their legal status, as opposed to getting caught in the US by immigration, only exception was one coyotte. Lots of facilities though, there are actually apparently a lot of people from around the world that get busted as illegals not all from Mexico, although they are the majority. I've met plenty of people that worked in the US and didn't get caught also in Mexico, but I've met plenty of Americans working illegally in Mexico too including drug dealers.. it goes both ways. I even had $450 taken from me by an American last time I was in Mexico by fraud. Lots of criminals from both countries on both sides of the border. I could make a gun if I needed to but I try to keep Koshure with the law if it isn't an emergency.Too bad your not a Mexican drug dealer thoes guys come and go at will...all I can tell you is I will always carry a firearm legal or not no government will take away my God given right to defend myself and my family. Good luck, hope you get what you need.
