Here is the skinny on things. I'm heading to Kodiak in Nov for a blacktail hunt. My intention is to take a couple with the bow, but I would also like to take a gun as a backup (bear and also if I'm unable to connect with the bow). I know that most prefer the .338 or larger for bear, but I do not have a rifle that large. Here are my choices: T/C Encore 300 wmag single shot, 30-06 semi auto or 11-87 12 ga (slug/00 buck). I know that a well placed shot from any gun will kill a BB, but I'm more concerned with stopping a charge at close range. Which of the 3 would you take?
