Walk: Running from a predatory animal can trigger the hunter, so walk away with purpose. But if you must run, head downhill. Bears kind of suck at going down, but are awesome running uphill. And their endurance is awful, so keep going.
Jump In: Bears can swim and love water, but they are not down with wrestling large prey while staying afloat. If there's water nearby, get in and go deep.
Make Some Noise: Bears can make some intimidating noises, but they aren't a fan of noises they are unfamiliar with. So bring the noise and live to tell about it.
Play Dead: Okay, this doesn't work when a bear has stalked and attacked you, but will work with bears protecting their cubs or territory. So if you are a lover, not a fighter, play dead.
Calm The Charge: While it may be the last thing on your mind, calmly standing your ground when a bear is charging can be the best attack deflector. If you get a bluff attack as a warning, stand, wave your hands, and talk calmly to the bear.
Go Sideways: Because of the bear's huge upper body and neck muscles, rotating their heads side-to-side is difficult. Keep moving to the side to make it harder for them to see you... or see your attack on them.
