+1 on the bear spray. Works great on lions too. No need to gun it down unless you absolutely have to. Im sticking with my hollow points over hard cast hunting bullets. Having personally worked on mountain lions in school. They do get up to 250 lbs but thats extremely rare and more in the northern parts of the US. The average lion is near 100 lbs or so. Would you use a high grain hard cast hunting round on a 100 lbs man?
If a man hasn't found something worth dying for, he isn't fit to live
