    Question Worth bringing the rifle?

    Weather permitting me and a few buddies are planning on day-hiking the Russian Lakes trail this next week from Cooper to the Russian. Would it be worthwhile to bring the rifle along in case we see a black bear along the trail? I'll be bringing the shotgun regardless as I know this is grizz country, but if the opportunity to see a black bear is high would be happy to trade it in the for .338

    Thanks for any help y'all can give!

    For me, personally,
    If I take my Rifle , I might see something.


    If I leave my Rifle, I WILL see something


    Still, my Rifle is my best company, so I faithfully take it along.........
    If you can't Kill it with a 30-06, you should Hide.

    I'd take the rifle and back pack to pack out the meat.
