|Tie the cord with a double overhand knot--tight--so that there is no opening at the top of the bag. |
If food is visible, you have packed too much in.
If you can see it, a bear can get it.
- Tie URSACK up to a strong branch so that it can't be crushed or stolen. Bears have been known to chew through 5 inch branches to get to food.
- Always check trailhead regulations.
|After securing the opening with a double overhand knot, tie URSACK to a tree branch using a figure 8 or another knot that resists clinching, so that it can be untied easily. |
|Keep any food item that could leak in a plastic bag inside URSACK. Even though a bear may not be able to penetrate URSACK, he may be able to crush the contents. If URSACK does get crushed, there won't be a "food reward" that can be licked from the outside. |
|Machine wash, no bleach line dry || |
| DO NOT |
