"Remember that other hunters or outdoor enthusiasts may use your hunting area or campsite after you do. It is the ethical responsibility of any hunter who wounds a bear (e.g., in a DLP situation) to make a strong effort to find and kill the bear, and if the hunter has made a good faith effort but the wounded bear escapes, to notify other hunters in the area as well as ADF&G and Department of Public Safety/Alaska Wildlife Trooper personnel."

I'll stick with my governor in the woods for ease of carry while hiking or pulling when I need it in an instant
I have only seen "governors" under gun counter glass, not even once outdoors in Alaska; then again, it is a big state and I can't be everywhere at once.

There is no fool proof protection in bear country, but I'll take the hard and heavy sting to the face over anything else available.
How about 100% effective in Alaska? No fatalities? No serious injuries?
