My sister who lives in Alaska has been charged by a moose before while snowshoeing . . . and she even had a grizzly stalking her . . . and yet she still doesn't carry anything while out hiking/skiing/etc. She also tells me that in Alaska it is far more common to hear of folks getting stomped to death by moose than it is to die from a bear attack.
