This brings to mind an often overlooked, but potentially life-saving suggestion for hunting in Alaska: Even if nothing is wrong, it is a good idea to see if your doctor can prescribe at least a small amount of pain medication for emergencies. Trips like this brown bear hunt, and especially sheep or goat hunts present many hazards. One wrong step and you can earn a severely sprained ankle, or a fall could leave you with a broken arm.
If you're miles from the air strip, a twisted knee or sprained ankle could mean serious trouble. The possibilities of otherwise crippling injuries are endless. But, if you have some good pain meds, they can either help you suck it up to get to help, or they can keep you from going crazy with agony while waiting for help.
