This guy was lucky because he lived. Should you run into a big Alaskan bear unannounced, this could be the outcome This is a case where bigger is better no matter if its caliber, bullet weight or the tree you climb.. Give me 300 grains or more when walking Alaska...

Are they kidding with the shotgun, even loaded with slugs I think you would be better off with a big bore handgun.

A shotgun loaded with Brenneke slugs is plenty effective for bear.
Incidentally it is also plenty effective at bruising your shoulder, particularly when sighting in at the bench.
