You love camping, let’s take this Camping bear i hate people i eat people shirt, it’s a great shirt that you should have. What do you do if you encounter a bear when you camping. If suitable trees are available employ what is known as a “bear hang.” The idea is to secure your food stores in a waterproof and odor-free bear bag, up and out of reach of a bear, as well as inaccessible from the bear’s clever attempts to get at it. Remember, bears are intelligent and have good memories. If they have successfully accessed previous, poorly constructed bear hangs they will try the same methods again. The standard wisdom is to hang your food stores 10 or 12 feet up and four to six feet away from the tree’s trunk (bears can climb, you know).
