How To Hang A Bear Bag

By now, winter is over and the weather should be warming up across the country – even for those of you in Alaska! If you’re out camping in the backcountry or even at campgrounds, you need to know how to properly hang a bear bag.

Here’s a really good video that gives you step-by-step instructions on how to hang a bear bag.
