Don't do it!

Moose are larger than you think, and bear are tougher than you think. I can't think of any guide that would let a client go after either with buckshot.

Some guides in AK use slug guns for protection, also a big one they use is a Marlin 45-70 Guide gun. I had a cousin who was a guide when he lived in AK. He had a minimum caliber a cllente could use. He told me he carried a 458. cal Winchester . reason being if a client had a bad shot on a brown bear he could drop it before it made it to the bush. He said if that happened, Things get real exiting.
