Alpine Archers pics got me thinking...I've never been too concerned with bears where we used to hunt, I was there with old timers who'd always hunted that area, and it was no big deal to leave the ice chests outside of the campers, and sandwich stuff on the table inside.
Now I'll be in a new area, in a canvas tent, with nobody around to post guard. We'll have frozen food we'll need to keep in the chests, and will be cooking some inside the tent on the stove.
What does a guy need to be prepared to do, without spending a ton of $$ on bear proof chests?
Also, do I need to be concerned with fellas that might be less than ethical, with nobody around camp?[/i]
