The most obvious thing to be careful about when camping with bears is food. It's important to be aware of what you're doing when it comes to storing, eating and preparing your food. What SHOULD be done, of course, is to hang food from a tree, and cook and eat away from your tent. However, real-world conditions are rarely ideal. There were no trees in the area we hunted, so that precaution was out of the question. Second, the weather on the Alaska Peninsula is generally nasty enough to force you to cook and eat in your tent vestibule.
