New to the forum. Seems like there's lots of great info and hunters here.
I have a question about what people do with their food on extended backpacking hunts. I've been on 2 short backpack hunts for bou and goats and used a bearproof canister for our food. On the goat hunt, I watch a sow black bear and cub walk within 50 yards of the canister and not bother it. I'm going on my first 10-day sheep hunt this fall and would prefer not to carry the canister for this many days. I doubt that 10 days worth of food for 2 will fit into one canister. Carrying all of the food while hunting from basecamp doesn't seem like a great idea either. Any suggestions for protecting your food while gone from camp above treeline?
