Re: Alaskan Brown Bear hunt + Rain + Wooden Stock = ???
The wax sounds like a good idea, you may even take it apart and coat the barel chanel. You aren't the first or the last to use a wood stock in the rain I have never had an issue, I have used wood stocks on two hunts in Alaska one of which it rained every day. The last thing I would do is trapse thru the woods in brown bear country with a rifle in some type of case or sock that I could not use, most bear chrges start and end very fast, in a seconds time you may have to choose to have a bear on the wall or be in a bears mouth.
Where and when is your hunt?
