I’ve never seen that technique before. That is awesome. I am sure that it would disqualify your skulls (Lion and Bear) from entry into the record books unless you had it dipped after it was entered into the books. Still it’s a great idea.
I learned this the hard way last year. If you're hunting in an area with lots of bear activity, it's a great idea to stash your food and water up in a tree. I like to wrap everything in a tarp and tie it between two trees. Don't just tie it up in one tree but tie it in between two trees at least 15 feet in the air. I thought I had my backpacking camp's food supply stashed pretty well last year. I returned to camp during the first weekend of archery to find all my food destroyed. Make sure...
