Camping with wildlife is all about common sense and being outdoor smart. Remember that you are visiting their habitat and influencing local wildlife behavior. As many of you have seen, some folks just leave their coolers and food containers out day and night. That's just asking for it. It doesn't have to be just about bears. Many creatures make a good living feeding off less than smart campers at campgrounds. Ruining their outing perhaps many miles from re-supplies. Here in Texas it is wild hogs. It's unlawful to shoot wildlife in NP's/SP's/ national and state lands unless it's quite obvious that you are in life's harm and it was a last ditch attempt. Property is not included. And that should never happen if your camp wise. Everyone should understand that unlike black bears, grizzlies are not afraid of you, especially if they are hungry or with cubs. So please use common sense.

Managers of a place we stayed in the Adirondacks with bears coming around all of the time told us to cover the cooler in the car. They said that the bears recognize coolers.

I think smart park bears have learned to read the words "Coleman" and "Igloo".
