This is prudent wherever you are. Store your food as far away from where you sleep as possible.

Same with washing dishes, ect... Just common sense. Also doesn't hurt to do some scent marking around the perimeter, although in places where bears (and other thieves) are habituated, that probably doesn't matter.

Doing this sort of thing and securing my food properly I've NEVER had an incident with any animals in the night (during the day once I left something out and a red squirrel stole it). I could be incredibly lucky but I really don't think that's the case because I've been in exact areas where I've heard of other incidents occurring. I've definitely heard animals in the vicinity of my tent, but never close by, and I was never all that concerned about what they were or what they were doing as long as I wasn't sloppy or lazy.
