<p>&nbsp;</p> <h1>How to Protect Your Food from Animals</h1> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Raccoons, Bears and Moose&hellip; Oh My! When camping in the great outdoors keep yourself safe by protecting your food from animals on your upcoming camping trip. Don&rsquo;t worry &ndash; you got this.</p> <p>While it&rsquo;s okay to store food in your backpack when you&rsquo;re with it, you should never leave food unattended during the day.&nbsp;</p> <p>1. Overnight, your backpack should be left empty with all pouches and compartments unzipped &ndash; this way if animals are attracted to your backpack they won&rsquo;t gnaw or shred the material in search for food.&nbsp;</p> <p>2. Pots and eating utensils should be washed and rinsed far from your campsite.</p> <p>When possible cook food away from where you&rsquo;ll sleep to avoid leaving leftovers.</p> <p>Food and anything aromatic - like toothpaste, lotions and bug spray &ndash; should be stored 100 to 200 feet away from where you&rsquo;ll sleep. Store clothing you&rsquo;ve cooked in with your food.</p> <p>3. If you have a daypack or spare sacks for your food, use a rope and toss it over a high tree branch.</p> <p>4. Pull your sacks up and tie it off to the trunk of the tree. Alternatively, you can use your backpack the same way.</p> <p>5. Just be sure to hoist your food high enough to be out of the reach of bears.&nbsp;</p> <p>Sleep safely and with a full stomach &ndash; you got this.</p> <div><br /></div>
