Tents and Food

In bear country this means putting yourself at risk. Even if there are no bears around, there’s still a chance that some other animal will chew or claw a hole in the side of your tent to get in. This is most likely to occur while you’re away, but if an animal is hungry I enough it could even happen at night when you’re ! inside.
! It’s best to refrain from keeping or consuming food anywhere near the tent. Establish a cooking and dining area at least 50 to 100 feet away, whenever possible, and limit all food consumption to that location and beyond.
