Once I came back to my camp to find a bear going through my camp, two shots in the air and the bear was gone. Now if the bear had a cub with it I could have had my AR-10 with me and I still would have been in trouble. I used my 22 for the next two days to shoot rabbits and birds, try shooting a rabbit or bird with a 44 mag! The only thing better than a good 22 in the backcountry is a dog that is willing to wear a backpack, carries his own stuff, and scares away lions. Another thing you may want to think about, try carrying 100 rounds of 44 mag in pocket for the day!
