Re: Bear Bags and Bear Resistant Containers - why are they necessary?

From my experience, some areas do not even allow you to throw a bear bag over a tree.  It has to be in a bear canister to protect the scent.  Although I don't completely see "eye to eye" with this concept, you are better off safe than sorry.  Especially if you want to avoid receiving a fine for not following the guidelines.  I'd rather spend the money to rent a bear canister than suffer the monetary consequences of receiving the fine.  I still place my canister far away from camp after all the food is put inside it.  Hope this helps the emotional side of things!

It depends on where you go. Some people’s require them, as well as being on the approved list (like Yosemite for an example).
