 I have noted on the PCT is leaving your bear

 the odors will still
 attract bears, and you

 outside your tent. This does not seem wise to

 The bears in the Sierra are smart. I've woken in the morning to see bear tracks walk right by my bearikade. They don't even bother to knock them over.

The bear can requirement has been very effective in altering bear behavior.
