DOCSpanky, I have two methods I use to dispatch wounded game. My preferred method is to leap on its back with my Bowie knife and stab it repeatedly in the chest until it expires!!! But watch it - some of those little rascals have alot of fight in them. If it looks like it might be an especially tough scrappy one, well then I whip out my .44 mag and aim for a head shot before they get a chance to charge.
BE CAREFUL !!! I've had em leap off the ground near 5' when going for my throat before.
