Alaska Facts No. 2

(you can click on the picture for a larger version)
When hunting for grizzly (also known as "brown bear" near the coast, or "immense scary hungry man-eating bear" on Kodiak) choice of firearms is important, since the grizzly is itself covered in a tough layer of sinew and bone. This sinew and bone forms an effective barrier that prevents the bear from being injured by minor things (branches, boulders, nuclear missles).

So, when using low-caliber rifles for hunting bear, (anything less than say, .50 caliber) equipped with a scope, remember to file off the front gun site. The front gun site is fairly useless when using a scope, and it will feel much better if that sharpened bit of metal is smoothed down when the bear shoves that tiny rifle up your ass.

You can thank me later.
