BIG BEAR MEDICINE

Field and Stream - - CAMPFIRE -

Rem­ing­ton’s Model 700 AWR, the Amer­i­can Wilder­ness Ri­fle ($1,150; rem­ing­ton. com), is ideal for an Alaska bear hunt. Mod­er­ately light­weight at a lit­tle over 7 pounds, even when cham­bered in bear-stop­ping cal­ibers such as .300 Win. Mag., it car­ries eas­ily on long ver­ti­cal hauls. Just as im­por­tant, the 24-inch stain­lesssteel bar­rel has a cor­ro­sion-re­sis­tant black Cer­akote fin­ish that pro­tects the ri­fle should you drop it in the surf, as I did as I loaded my bear into the boat. —D.D.
