All food, trash, toiletries and other scented items should be stored in the bearproof Bear Keg. This includes all sealed food, sunscreen, soap, bug repellent, deodorant, medications, and feminine products.
Remove Bear Keg from any external case and do not hang or attach anything to the canister before storing at camp. The keg is designed to be smooth and offer no means for wildlife to hold or carry off the keg. The Bear Keg should be placed at least 100 feet from camp on flat ground. Do not store it near a cliff or on a hill. Placing pots and pans on top of the Bear Keg can be an option as well to act as an alarm if the Keg is disturbed.
The Counter Assault Bear keg is Grizzly Tough® and has been tested by live captive bears (that are unable to be released into the wild) at an approved IGBC (Interagency Grizzly Bear Committee) facility.
