I guess few of you have ever been in a firefight at night. It is a risky type of shooting match and one that is much healthier if you win it. Fair chase rules require that the other party have some reasonable chance of winning. However, I prefer that the other party have very little chance of winning. Camping for extended period of time in bear country requires some consideration of the fact that bears like pretty much the same foods that you like. Now then a bear is very speedy and I am not. A bear has some sharp teeth and long claws and I do not. And finally, a bear is chiefly nocturnal and I am chiefly not. This leads to some large disadvantages that need to be overcome. Having pondered this situation for a couple of years, I ordered a Maxima LED Occupancy Sensor Light. It has a motion sensor and a light sensor. The circuitry will turn on at night if it detects motion out to about 20 feet but does not turn on during the daytime or if you are running your Coleman lantern. It operates off of 4 AA batteries and has three LEDs. Very few motion sensor lights are battery operated!!! I set this light up at the entrance to the cooktent so if a bear goes in the light would come on and stay on for as long as there is motion. It performed just as advertised. Unfortunately the bears were afraid of the dark and would not come and get into our food so I did not get to test it out in a shooting situation. One benefit is that when you get up in the morning in the dark and head for the cooktent, it turns on so you can see to light the lantern and then it goes off. Battery life seemed to be good enough for a month of use. The only problems with it are that it is not waterproof and must be protected from rain and the base is not very stable and it will fall over. It also does not like the cooktent flaps to flap and will turn on if they get to moving too much.
