When I lived in Northern NY, I always carried a 41 mag Blackhawk 5 1/2" barrel
It got stolen so I replaced it with the 7 1/2" 44 mag Redhawk double action. Down here in TX, we got rattle snakes as big as your leg. You don't have to hit one with the bullet, the muzzle blast screws em up pretty good, so you can aim on the second shot. For Hawgs too. We are getting black bears showing up too. The bow is fun, but if that hawg comes running toward me, I got an artillery piece to handle that. I stillhunt and set in stands for a nap. I hunt all year long for predators here, The hawgs taste better than store bought pork.
