I have been remote camping for many years. Typically in Alaska and Canada. In all of my RR postings, I always have a bear box. If you look close, there is a plastic bag next to my bear box. Being on the road for 3+ weeks, my bear box didn't hold enough food so I had my extras that didn't fit in bear box is in a bag next to it. In a plastic bag, I had nuts, protein bars and oatmeal. Never had even a squirl bothered it. I always remote camp. Maybe camp grounds would be different being bears know there is always food there. And yes, in 2019 coming back from Prudhoe Bay, I had a bear cut my tent as I was sleeping. I had my open bag of food there and it was never touched it. Bears will be curious. If it was after food, there was plenty 50 feet away. Yes, bears want food, I'm just not convinced i will get killed in the middle of the night because a bear smelled my toothpaste.
