    Any of you veteran backpack hunters ever have issues with critters paying you a visit in your floorless shelters while elk hunting the rockies? Bow season, rifle seasons...any of it.

    Not in the Rockey Mtns. but I've had them in my shelter in the Cascades.Just don't leave ANY food in the shelter or anything like sweaty socks laying on the ground.Those same critters will chew through a floored tent pretty quick too.
    I also avoid camping in any well used areas

    Had a mouse bite my finger in the middle of the night once, kind of scared the shit out of me! I didn't know what was going on. Lol.
