Remember that bears are curious creatures with a powerful sense of smell. Please follow local camping regulations, but here are some tips:
- Set up cooking, eating, and supply areas at least 100 yards from your sleeping area.
- Store food and odorous items by hanging at least 10 feet above ground and 4 feet from top and side supports or by storing in approved bear-resistant containers.
- Select food in individually sealed packages. Plan meals carefully to prevent leftovers.
- Store pet food, livestock feed, and garbage the same as food. Never bury it; pack it out.
- Strain food particles from dishwater using a fine mesh screen and store with garbage.
- Dump dishwater at least 100 yards from your sleeping area. Food odors may attract bears.
- Keep sleeping bags and tents completely free of food, food odors, or beverages at all times.
- Store personal items (such as deodorants, toothpaste, make-up, soap, and lotions) with food and garbage when not in use. Any odorous product may attract bears.
- Camp in open areas away from trails, thick brush, berry patches, spawning streams, or carcasses.
- Sleep in a tent for increased safety.
- Wash your hands thoroughly after cooking, eating, or handling fish or game. Always minimize odors.
- Change your clothes before going to bed — do not sleep in the same clothes you cook in.
- Rehearse what you and others in your group will do — day or night —
- If a bear appears in your camp or while you’re hiking. Review local regulations before your outing.
