A gun of any kind isn't necessary in bear country. Heck, biologists who stick their heads into dens to tag cubs don't carry a gun.

Hmmm....I wonder if that is because those biologists know that the bears are in hibernation during the tagging of cubs?

Bears are aroused very easily while hibernating. Some even flee the den before you can reach it. And a mother with newborn cubs spends a surprising amount of time awake.
