Re: Sidearm during deer season?
I carry a Colt Anaconda 4inch 44mag for Griz while fishing and bowhunting in my area. Not too worriede about lions they are curious but not likely to attack. Griz on the other hand can be a little aggressive. My son has a S&W 44 mag Mountain Gun its lighter than the Anaconda but shoots just as well. If I can find a used Mountain Gun I will buy it and stop carrying the Anaconda. Wyoming just made it legal to carry a side arm while bow hunting a few years ago in response to several grizzly attacks. But the size of some of the grizzly bears I have seen makes me doubt how effective the .44 mag will be. Hope I never have to find out. Best defense is pepper spray but a back up is sure nice to have.
