Just got back from a brown bear hunt in SE Alaska. My good friend and I went 2/2 with Adams Alaskan Safaris. I got a decent last day 8' square, 24" skull bear, my buddy got a fantastic 9'7" square, 27+" skull. Dale Adams is a great guide to hunt with if you're looking for a brown bear. I used a Savage 110 t-SR in .300 Win Mag loaded with 190gr Barnes LRX bullets. Scope was an Athlon Midas BTR 2.5-15 and Binos were Athlon Ares 10x42. Both performed excellently in the rain/cold/saltwater/general wet environment that is SE Alaska. I'll try to post pics if I'm allowed/can figure it out.
