Depending on how much you like to climb a tree here is what I do. Either climb one tree and tie off one end of your rope or throw the rope over a high limb and tie the end of the rope off. Take the other end and throw it over a high limb of a second tree and leave enough rope to reach the ground between the two trees. Then take what ever you want to hang and tie it to the rope that is looped from tree to tree, then take the second end of the rope and pull your goodies up high enough to where Yogi can't reach it and tie the second end off. This way it is off of the tree and out of reach of Yogi.
