For those of you who have waterfowl hunted in Alaska. How did you get ammunition to Alaska? I will be hunting in Cold Bay for six days. Most airlines only allow you 11 pounds and I am sure I will need more than that.

Why not buy a few cases from Rogers and just pay the extra to ship it there?

Take all the foam out of your hard case and pack gun with clothes/ammo.

I travel plenty in the lower 48 with ammo in my luggage. I guess the question I meant to ask was more along the lines of "Is there anywhere in Anchorage to buy ammo? Places that have a reliable selection." In Alaska it is ok to check up to 50 pounds of ammo. I can't do that from the Texas to Alaska.

Donít know if weight restrictions change, but you will absolutely have plenty of options such as Sportsmanís Warehouse, Cabelas, etc.

I checked Bass Pro and Cabelas in Alaska and they have limited supply of the shells I normally shoot but plenty of other shells.
