[pct-l] Re: Bear Proofing Your Food

I'm just a little curious.

Has anyone tried disguising the scent of your food??

You could store your food in a large, plastic trashbad that is
ornamented with, say, velcro tabs.  The velcro tabs are loaded with
animal scent (from the sporting goods store, the flavors come in racoon,
deer & possibly skunk.  After your meal (or whatever), store food in the
plastic gargage bag and bury it under leaves to disguise it from the
visually curious. 

Somewone on the list, please try this.
