The forum member was correct, there are no snakes. Although "snake" shot type loads are good for bagging grouse and ptarmigan for supper, there are lots of those and a small game license isn't too spendy even for an out of stater.

Accounting for all of the other stuff I said, the 5.5" Redhawk in 44 Mag would be an excellent one gun choice for everything you say you intend to do on this trip.

Don't want to start a fight but the difference between 44 heavy loads and 10mm "heavy" loads is not even close to trivial.
