My father and I hunt moose up north country (BC/Yukon) and have had few encounters with Grizzlies. I have been charged twice, when I accidentally came near its prey (IMHO pepper spray wouldn't have stopped that angry guy) few shotgun shots in his direction made him run away. Another case was when I was fly fishing Skeena river, angry grizz cub came running at me (I was in waders in the water) and again I had my trusty mossberg with pistol grip and short barrel on my back. Could pepper spray help? Maybe. But with strong winds in my face I wouldn't have felt comfortable spraying. However we never issues sleeping in the RTT or had bears come to our camp.. We make sure that all of our food waste is either burnt or safely packed away.
