Here's a funny story: :lol:
On one Campout fondly labeled "Racoon Campout 1997" our club went camping on our annual spring campout.

We had all our food sealed in large rubbermaid containers, we thought, and had brought an old "cabin tent" to store these containers in.

In the middle of the night, I awoke VERY QUICKLY to what sounded like two bears growling and fighting IN THE CAMPSITE. Needless to say I frantically (and maybe foolishly if it had really been bears) began to make a lot of noise as I scrambled for shoes and a flashlight. I quickly stepped out of the tent and beamed 'em with my big flashlight. Luckily the "bears" were only coons, but they had been fighting over a pan of BROWNIES that a pathfinder had brought with them.

The funny thing is, the mom had made the brownies for the whole club, but the Pathfinder, not thinking, had simply placed them ON TOP of one of the rubbermaids in the "food tent." He figured we'd have them at Sabbath lunch.

Well, needless to say we didn't, but boy did it teach the kids a lesson about food in the tents, since the coons had CUT a hole in the back of the tent to get in to the feast, then had cut ANOTHER hole in the front of the tent to drag out their treasure

Great memory. . . NOW

That actually reminds me of something similar that happened at a campout a while back. One of the kids decided to sneak some food into his tent, and leave it open in there overnight, and he wakes up screaming to find a coon in his tent on top of him eating the food! It was hilarious(much later, of course), and now he knows better than to do that again :lol:

Also, when confronted with bears, I hear you are supposed to make a lot of loud noise, which startles them easily (although I don't know many who would have the guts to do that!)

LOL. The only wild animals I've ever worried about so far that have come INTO my tent at nite when food was left down is fire ants. We awoke in the morning with ants attacking us!

A bag of fire ant killer is a standard camping supply for our group.
The place we needed it most was at Union Camporee at Nameless Valley Ranch a few years back.

LOl yeah, definatly florida, although I must admit that Georgia has bigger nad meaner fire ants than we do! I've learned my lesson my parents have been trying to teach me for years - carry RAID! LOl. The cool thing is you can spray it around the seams both outside and inside (make sure to air your tent out before you stay in it with the windows shut!)
