    Alaska hunt...

    in Alaska I took a sheep, moose, caribou, black bear and interior grizzly with a 300 weatherby magnum and a 180 Barnes x bullet. For the costal and Kodak bears I used a 300 grain Barnes X in a 375 H&H out of a Wearherby dangerous game rifle. Both applications were perfect.

    A lot of outfitters have supressors on their guns and you can avoid the hassle of taking guns all together. I just did that on a recent safari and it was great traveling without guns or checked baggage- a big deal in todays air travel.
