Sorry, for the repetition of my earlier request for assistance.
I am still looking for ideas or information.
At summer camp and I expect this camping year we are going to have =
a real problem with skunks, at least where I live. At summer camp =
food alone didn't seem to be the draw to bring them towards the =
campers. You might argue that maybe a previous user of the site had =
food where we were thus these black and whites, with reasonable memories,=
came back checking for something tasty. =
Any tried and trued methods of keeping the skunks away from the
campers so they can have a nights sleep. I mean far away.
My only thought was to hang food bags, i.e the "Bear Bag Hang" =
someplace away from the camp. The Bear Bag is where at night you =
put all your food in a bag or maybe several bags and throw a rope =
over a limb far from your tents. You pull the Bag up high and
wrap it around the tree with maybe a Clove Hitch, a Timberline
Hitch or just a Wrap around.
YiS, IMHO, and may we each attempt to live the SO,SL,SS,SM
