This fall I will be camping alone quite a bit. I like to backpack up into the mountains. I am trying to think of a way to safeguard the area just around my small tent, from animals (man or beast). I thought about having some rolls of felt, say about 2 feet wide, and just lay these in some grass full of stickers. We have some ferocious stickers in Oklahoma. Then I could just fold them over, and roll them up for storage. When camping I could open them and lay the strips around the perimeter of my tent at night. We have many wild and vicious animals here that attack; cougars, black bear, coyotes, and wild hogs. The latter will attack in packs and have been known to kill people. The weigh around 500 pounds and can bite your head clean off. I would hate to be sleeping on the ground when one entered my camp site. Stickers wouldn't stop a hoofed hog. Or a boot wearing good ol boy either. Anybody have any suggestions. I do carry a rifle.
