50L pack & a bear barrel?

So I am looking at downsizing pack. Bear kegs are required/recommended in ADK.

Do folks:
  1. Stuff these into pack and pack around it?
  2. Hang on exterior?
  3. Pack clothes inside of it so your PJ's smell like bacon?
  4. Launch it with a trebuchet from trail head and than hike until you find it?

Pretty sure #3 is a DEC regulation in an attempt to cull the herd a bit.

#4 sounds like fun, well until someone puts and eye out, then you will need a permit.

I have a 45 L pack that can fit a Garcia canister so that is what I do. Best way I know of to keep the weight centered and close to my back.
