Does anyone know what kind/size of rifle Heimo's daughter is using? It is a stainless on a light colored wood stock with matching stainless scope. From the kick my guess would be 300 win. It would be interesting to know what pistol she is packing. I love the show and all the segments.

At one point she had a Ruger 77 varmint rifle so couldn’t have been bigger than a 308.

It is obvious that Heimo's daughter has put a lot of thought and consideration into her gun choices. There are a lot of interesting firearms in the series. The AR 10 that was used to take a Grizzley in Kavac was interesting. Not my choice for artic weather, but it worked.

I don't know the caliber, but it appears to be a Ruger Mark II, with the laminated stock there was a Cinnamon color and a gray. She obviously has the Cinnamon one.

I have wondered about this also... Heimo does shoot a .22-250 not sure where I heard that.. Fed blue box ammo..

I think Heimo uses an old Remington 788 and I'm guessing 308. He is certainly aware of the bear issues and has no problem shooting one that is a problem. I don't see the 22-250 as adequate although popular with many native folks for caribou. Heimo goes after moose as well.

I stand corrected. 458WIn says Heimo uses 22-250 for everything.

By far the best of the Alaskan reality shows. I enjoyed seeing the Savage 24 on a recent episode. It looked like the top barrel was a centerfire caliber.

Jack, I still think the .22-250 was mentioned, maybe by his daughter to someone here on the fire... If you notice, he always has a .44 and when there is any issue with bears they take shotguns and slugs.. Maybe buckshot too..

Old Bob Harte went to the great beyond not too long ago. It was sad to see him go downhill so quickly. Heimo and his family seem to know their stuff about living in the wilderness. Edna trapped two wolves in one set last season. The older and smarter residents use snow machines and don't live their lives owned by dogs.

That's the one the young man had, that belonged to his dad. Top barrel was a 222 Remington.

I think that you are correct. A Ruger M77 Mark II. The square bolt handle looks the same as on the show.

I agree, best of the alaskan shows. Miss Bob Hart on that show, always appreciated his attitude of gratitude for the way he chose to live.

It is a Ruger Mark II and it is very, very likely in 30/06.....
No question this is the BEST Alaska show on television. I miss Bob Harte. He was the real deal. On the other hand, Life Below Zero is -to us Alaskans- pretty FAKE....but, to OUTSIDE people it is a winner!

Last Alaskan is a great show,the loss of Bob Hart is sad , I do enjoy Heimo and his family too. What ever happened to Ray Lewis he was my favorite and to be honest he look like a man from the past generations tough ,strong and a big man with a old lever Winchester 30-06, I would sure enjoy living with Ray for 6 months in the cabin. maybe Caribou should be on a Alaska show somehow ,he seems more interesting than those other Alaskan shows ? I have a old friend who lives kinda near Bethel,Alaska named Leroy Z. an old Viet Nam vet lives way out in the sticks he would be more interesting than some of those other Alaskan shows too.
