On our trip last year a member of our party knew the ranger at camp baker. He had told us of the upcoming bear proofing reg and offered us to demo this:
Counter Assault Pentagon™ Electric Bear Fence : Cabela's
Someone mentioned .12 joules isn't enough; I can't comment on that since nothing explored our camps but the fence itself was not a hassle at all. It's up in about 5 min and easily fit 4 boats worth of coolers and boxes inside it.
It packs up small and is pretty light. The only downside was hopping over it since I think you are supposed to keep the battery on the inside of the perimeter so it isn't knocked over, etc. and power is lost. We had a couple of close call crotch zaps...
New here by the way. Been stalking for awhile, finally felt like I had something constructive to add to a thread.
