RE: Abandon Ship Bag

This thread shouldn't degrade into Alaska Bear tales.
For those who do come up to Alaska.
*If you go ashore you should be prepared for a bear encounter.

**** Marin's sugestion to carry a 12 ga shotgun is the best.

Easy for the novice to use. And quite effective.*

RickB's post shows the best to use if hunting broun bear ( bigger than Grizzly )

Brown bear are costal while griz are more inland. Kodiak Island Brown bear are the biggest at an average of over 9 ft.

Be Bear aware and be safe. If you go ashore.
