I know that many of us archers prefer to hunt alone. With bow in hand, how many of you carry a back-up such as a revolver when in blackie country.
I have a few options: Carry a back-up rifle on the pack. Carry an Encore pistol (7mm/08) just in case the bow shot does not happen. Or carry the .44 revolver for bears. (could also carry a Contender in 30/30, .44 mag., .445 Supermag or .357 Max.)
Not brownie hunting here. Hunting goats, sheep and deer.
Carry a back-up or just the bow?
