Canadian Rockies trip in July

Folks - yet another vacation gear question.  I am heading to Canadian Rockies in July with family.  As of now, I plan to take the following:

D850, 20mm 1.8G, 28mm 1.4E, 58mm 1.4G, 105mm 1.4E and 300mm 4E PF with TC1.4III and TC1.7II + ND,  CP, light tripod etc.  weight would be 8-9 Kg including the camera bag and tripod.

I haven’t been to Canada before, questions I have are:

1) Would I miss 24-70 and 70-200 zooms.  I have the latest version of those and they are great, but I have refrained from lugging them around on vacation.  I do not believe these would be useful but want to benefit from experience of folks here.

2) Also, I read wildlife is mostly larger animals, so 300mm with TC’s would suffice.  Any value in lugging 500mm f4?

Thanks for your time.
