Just Your Average Tip: On Bear Bagging…

This was actually part of another post, so I am kinda cheating here on JYAT’s… but I did want to call this out again in case you did not read that post.

imageWhen bear bagging, of course you want to pack in your food. All of it. Also, you want to bear bag your trash (food bags, etc.), as well as all of your cookware which is used to cook, prepare, or eat your food. Why? Because you might not be able to still smell the beef stroganoff on your spork still, but I bet you a bear can smell it.

So, think about that before you go hanging that in for the night… you definitely do not want a bear rummaging around your tent with you in it for your empty granola bar wrapper you left in the pocket of your pants.

  1. Being just an average camper in Australia, I almost bypassed this post on bear bagging.
    After all, we don’t have bears here.
    But I quickly realised your advice was relevant because we have our share of hungry predators.
    Anyone silly enough to eat, or store food, inside their tent could easily end up tangling with dingos (wild dogs), crocodiles or feral cats.
    The bear bagging principle applies wherever you roam.
