In Montana anyplace that is Grizzly habitat you will get fined if you don't have all food in bear prof container or left out. My Son was camping at Sun Canyon and eating a bag of chips. Had to go do a #1, set the chips on the table walked a cross the road to out house. When he came back out a ranger was there to wright him a ticket. $50 fine. I always pack something for bears after my other son was charged by a black bear. My son was only 30 yards away and I never saw the bear, just saw him pull up and fire 3 fast shots. Tanned up nice even with 2 holes in it.
