Re: 45-70 or 300 Weatherby
If the counrty doesnt allow long shots, or your son is up for a good stalk then take the 45-70 (is it a marlin?). They are so much fun for black bear hunts. The way I think is if I cant shoot it from far away then I want to shoot it as close as I can. The 45-70 is the perfect close quarters bear gun. If your son is looking to be versitile take the 300 wby. both are awsome calibers.
