After ready several Cliff Jacobson's books and picking his brain about the subject several times, I stopped hanging the food bag. That was some 15+ years ago.
Prior to that time, even when hanging, I would get smaller critters getting into the food while it was hung. I have always made sure food was double or triple bagged to eliminate odor leaking, but they would still get in.
Since I have started Hiding the food bag I have had zero "break ins" to my food bags. The only time my food bag was gotten into was when we left it around camp, sealed up, but the little critter still recognized it as a food bag and dug his way in, but he never found it once we hid it a way in the woods.
I guess Cliff was right.
It's nice to hear about others doing the hiding instead of the hanging.
The lapping of waves on the shore...
The hypnotic gurgling of a stream...
The eerie call of a loon...
Alas, I'm home!
