Yellowstone lens suggestion

I am planning to visit Yellowstone National Park next month. I have 24-70 f4, 85 1.8. I am planning to rent some lenses - wide and tele.

I am planning on 20 1.8 on wide, for any astro opportunity. But I am debating between 300 f4 PF + 1.4TC and 200-500 f5.6 or even 500PF+1.4TC

500PF+TC is most expensive, probably needs monopod and loses on zoom flexibility

300PF+TC is light weight, probably easy to hand hold, again losing the range between 70-300

200-500 gives maximum flexibility, least expensive but way too big and heavy, can't imagine   lugging it around with family.

By the way, I am not a hard core wildlife photographer, but Yellowstone provides a lot opportunity for an average person to shoot wildlife from lookout points or even road side. I am certainly not thinking of shooting bisons, they come really close so no need for a telephoto, but more like distant animals, fox, deers, bears, birds, etc or even landscape

Experienced shooters, what do you suggest?
