Handgun for Black Bear

Postby Buckbreath » Wed Dec 20, 2017 12:50 pm

My first bear I took with a bow. Now 7 years later, I should be getting close to drawing for another tag. I'm seriously considering trying a handgun. I have a Ruger Super Redhawk in .454 Casull. I have no questions on the lethality of the gun. I'm very accurate with it at 25 yards. How many beasts have handgunned a bear? Also, the noise from revolvers is crazy loud, do I put earplugs in immediately before shooting or do I invest in some power muffs?

I think it would be a cool accomplishment to add to the list. I have a pair of walkers earmuffs that I’ve had for a good number of years and still work fine. They were maybe $50
