    you have a chance!  Bears are damn fast.  There are more than a few stories of hunters who misgauged the time they had and were mauled before they could get a shot off.  I bet the noise will be the best defense, and even a starter pistol will do that.

    Then again, maybe all you need is a pocket knife

      with a pocketknife is way butcher than I am!

      Seriously, the best defense with a bear in the woods is making noise and then being big and aggressive, if a confrontation is inescapable.
