My significant other won't go to Afognak to hunt Elk with me because she says that it is much more dangerous than hunting moose up here in the valley. I told her that a bear can get her no matter where she is in Alaska. Heck, a Brown Bear was just killed 1 week ago less than a mile from home! I believe getting mauled is less likely than getting hit by lightning. She thinks anywhere on Kodiak or Afognak a person "will" get eaten. For some reason, she thinks anywhere in the Matsu Valley is "safe", whereas outside the Valley is Dangerous. Do your wives have the same thoughts?
