My tent is unsafe, I have no idea how to make completely safe. I like to go camping in the northern woods, bears like to sniff and bump my tent.
Are you keeping food inside the tent?
Bears usually will not come near humans unless there is food smell coming from within the tent.
I also camp in the north woods and generally its the coyotes that are daring enough to come into a campsite. Also they use coon dogs for hunting bear which falls in public camp season and they roam about to track bear. My personnal best defense is to keep my chainsaw just inside the door as being a camp host I find myself being alone in site untill my guests arrive. The chain saw noise is a good defense to scare off anything because its very loud .And yes Ive actually had to run it one night in Particular when my site was surrounded by a pack of coyotes and they were right outside. KEEP ALL FOOD AWAY FROM TENT AT ALL TIMES. Raccoons also are very daring and will come on site even when your there if they smell food and are smart enough to open water jugs with their paws the trick to keep them out of your food is to put the coolers under the bench part of the picnic tables so the lids cant be opened.Im a very ex. camper and can give tips all day long
