@RussellSawyer ALWAYS HANG YOUR FOOD!!!

Do NOT just steak/tie it down! Your responsibility is to deny bears ANY hope of a food reward. Bears are smart and persistent, TEASING them is just not the answer!! Besides, squirrels and rats/mice can get into an Ursack because they have small, sharp teeth, THEN you'll have a bear problem!!

ALWAYS hang your food at least 1 yard from any part of the tree, at least 5 yards from the ground, and at least 10 yards from your campsite. If you are hunting/fishing/trapping, then process/prepare/preserve your wild food at least 50 yards from your campground. Just remember 1, 5, 10, 50. And by the way, I ACTUALLY OWN an Ursack (and almost 35 years experience here!).

Hey, look ma, no Google!
