Looking for a little advice. My wife has a tok sheep tag and will be carrying her .270. She's a good shot but not exactly what I would call a quick draw winner.
We'll be flying in, and I'm wondering if I should worry at all about carrying my G20 in 10mm. I'm not looking to get in a, "what caliber will work on bears" debate (good lord that get's old). I just would like to know if any of you seasoned sheep hunters bother to carry a sidearm if your not packing a rifle. I'd rather not carry the extra weight and have had good results from pepper spray while bow hunting in Montana. But the tent thing has me somewhat concerned. I'm not a fan of spicing the burrito if Mr. Bear decides to try some pigs-in-a-blanket.
From what I've been told there aren't too many bear issues in that area but I thought I'd see what the consensus is from you guys as well.
