- FRONTIERSMAN Insider Bear Safe
Bears are often on the lookout for an easy meal. Because the average bear's sense of smell is 2,100 times better than that of a human, it can smell a piece of bacon or other goody from many miles away. If you're carrying that piece of bacon or other delectable delight in anything but a bear-proof container, you may end up cutting your backcountry adventure short.
Using a Bear-Proof Canister May Be Required
Certain designated wilderness areas and national parks make it mandatory to use a bear canister. Visitors are encouraged to contact the administrative offices of the specific places they plan to visit for their individual policies. Even if the park does not have this policy, having a bear safe will provide you with peace of mind that no bear can get into your food.
