Yes, just looked at the 500mm this morning from lensrentals. I may go that route. Its worth it. Not exactly sure how close the bears get, but it sounds like they could get really close, close enough to where we have to move to required distance. And I do have a second camera body.
Quality of tripod is more important to me. I am looking for a long time tripod, so I am willing to spend say up to $800 on a tripod, but if I need to spend more, then. I love my head I have now, but it doesn't really hold the 100-400mm all that steady. Sometimes I can get it to, but am thinking I need a head that can hold more weight than the 100-400mm. Its an acratech head. Doesn't look like they carry the one I have anymore, but its similar to some of them listed. Love it too. I will check out the link you sent.
Edit: tripod head info
