Shotgun slugs are ok to 100 yds but wouldn't be my first choice. Your mileage may vary.

On the positive side having slugs on board is decent defence against a grizzly....If you manage to get a shot off. You'll likely still get gnawed a little but he'll be sporting a major league headache while he's chewing.
If you're worried:

Heat kills F. tularensis, so cook meat to the right temperature a minimum of 165 F (73.8 C) for ground meat and game meat to make it safe to eat.
