Back when I was a teenager people would nail up plywood with a bunch of 16 penny nails sticking out to their cabin doors and windows when they had to leave for a while (or if it was a seasonal cabin). It worked most of the time, but a determined bear could still find a way in. Laying them on the ground is an idea I haven't heard of before. It might work, but the plywood won't last too long, laying on the ground.

Could a bear climb a nail studded log? Would 2" nails be short enough to not become a nail ladder, yet long enough to be uncomfortable, and not so long as to do serious injury? Are there other critters drawn to honey that would be able to climb up the log if the sides were studded with nails?
