Which telephoto will be best for photographing bears in Alaska

I have recently inherited some lenses from my granddad and am going on a trip to Alaska this summer. I want to take one general purpose lense for mountains and close things and one telephoto for wildlife. Which of these telephoto should you recommend. I think the bigger might not be the best quality, is is this not the case? is focal length the most important thing?

  1. Nikon ED AF NIKKOR 70-300mm 1:4-5.6 D
  2. Nikon ED AF-S VR-NIKKOR 70-200mm 1:2.8G
  3. Sigma ex 50-500mm 1:4-6.3 APO DG HSM D
