Or you could excercise well known campsite maintenence protocols and not have to worry about the bears to begin with! Bear troubles are usually caused by sloppy housekeeping in the woods. TBH, most riders will be lucky to even see a bear, much less have one bother them. Be more concerned with certain 2 legged predators, as there is no shortage of them, especially if you invade their natural habitiat. I've lived in Alaska for over 30 years and have hunted and explored pretty extensively. In that time I've seen maybe a dozen bears. The only campground that I remember ever having a bear problem is Byers Lake Campground in the Talkeetna-ish area and I'm sure that the authorities have figured out how to fix that by now. Watch out for the birds. They don't call them 'camprobbers' for nothing!
