Title: Dealing with left overs in Grizzly Country
Post by: Canadian archer on February 28, 2021, 12:47:01 PM
Hi There
Looking at planning my first Elk hunt in Montana this fall (COVID and Draw results willing).  Looking at the south west of Montana, which is Grizzly Country.  Have lots of experience camping in Black bear country, so hanging your food stuff and separate cooking area is pretty standard. 


But what do you do with your used Mountain House packages in Grizzly Country, is it better to burn them after use, or just wrap them up in plastic and store them with the rest of your food.
Just wondering what other people do.


Thanks for your thoughts.

We burn it. I like the idea of removing the smell altogether rather than hanging it back in a tree to advertise to bears.

I think the mountain house packages and most other food items would have less odor before opening them and would smell more enticing after they have been cooked.

We ran a garbage can with lots and no issues on any of it. Dependant on time maybe?
