I have done a search on this topic and found that most just use whatever rifle they have from 243 and up. My question to you guys is if you where to buy a rifle for just black bear baitting what would you buy and why. Of course I could prolly' find other uses for it as well.
This will be my first year bear baitting. I have a 270 roy and an 8mm rem mag. for big game rifles. I know these will work but I was thinking more along the lines of an open sighted lever gun or.....
Would a 44 mag lever be enough without edging towards too light? Maybe a 444 or even a 35 rem? What do you guys think? A 44 mag would be cool if I could carry the same ammo as my pistol.
