    I wonder if a strobe flashlight would bung up a bear's vision like it does with people?

    I sleep rifle right next to me, with the bolt open slightly, just gotta lock and pop. Haven't ever had major issues with bears other than being robbed.

    Take some hamburger and make a dozen meatballs. Place them around the perimeter of your camp, so when a bear hits them, he goes around your camp and not through it.

    I sleep without a tent, a dog on either side and something under my pillow.

    You should consider seeing a psychologist to get over your fears. Statistically, all you have is a phobia of something that will probably never happen. Take precautions, bring a dog if possible, and a big gun.

    Personally, I would be very reluctant to store my food 200 yards away....particularly in the alpine where there are no trees around. If a bear gets your food your trip could come to an abrupt end and if it's two or three days back to the drop point you'll regret not protecting your food better.

    I wouldn't do that either. Alpine hunts my food usually stays in the vestibule or outside under the siltarp. Will have to deal with a bear if it happens I guess, but haven't had a problem yet. Never hurts having the dog with me.

    Speaking from experience having a Gbear coming into your tent is one scary time. I now put food 30 yards or so from camp 20' up a tree if possible. Sleep with the rifle loaded in the tent and with a headlamp strapped to my head. I too have a pack alarm and haven't had anything trigger it yet other than tree branches.
