    The more important question is why you would ever let him out in the first place!

    So the consensus seems to be no cannisters for food?

    Do you then hang food? Anyone use one of those ursack bear bag things?

    I would save my money and use an inexpensive bag of the same size. What the heck does "bear resistant" mean really? Probably means that the bear will work up a better appitite in the minute or so it takes it to destroy the ursack. Hang your food in anything that will will hold it, but if the bear gets to the food it is gone ursack or not.
