Interesting discussion. I see alot of the same in the hiker community. I just finished a thru-hike of the Appalacian Trail. In five and a half months I probably slept in a tent in black bear country a hundred nights. Saw a few bears, one pretty close and curious. Slept with my food the whole time. One thing, bears are smart and will go where the food is. You are more likely to get harassed by bears if you camp where people are, in other words, in established camp grounds.
