I cannot agree with this statement more.  There are very few places
along the CDT anywhere in Montana where sleeping with your food would
be an acceptable practice.  The entire corridor from Glacier south to
Yellowstone is considered to be griz country and following proper
hanging or canister techniques is highly recommended for both the
safety of the hiker as well as the bear.
