How do you hang a bear bag when just dangling it from a branch isn't an option? For example if you can't find the right branch.

Run a line between two trees and hang the bag from that . I'll see if I can find a inforgraphic on it, but it's pretty straightforward.

No infographic, but a brief explanation of the process courtesy of leave no trace website (lnt.org)

>In many areas finding the perfect tree for a single-branch hang is challenging. More often than not you’ll have to do a “two-tree” hang meaning you’ll have to use two shorter branches on two different trees. This is most easily accomplished by throwing the rope (weighted of course) over one branch on one tree then throwing the other end over the branch of another tree, and then attaching your bag to the center of the line. Have a helper pull on one end of the rope while you pull on the other, raising the bag until it reaches the magic 12’ and 6’. You might have to dig deep into your 8th grade geometry knowledge to get the right proportions but with a bit of forethought, you’ll eventually get it right.

AT Thruhiker here. It's not awful. It's actually the best method out there and takes two minutes of effort. Albeit this infograph makes it look like tearing down an engine.
