For those of you who hunt in black bear country, like me, what do you bring for bear defense, if anything? (I mean if you are carrying a hunting firearm best suited for varmint and small game like a rimfire.) Black bears can weigh in excess of 400 lbs. and are 6' long. For something that size I would generally think a .45 or .357 wouldn't be sufficient and a .41 or .44 Magnum might do the trick.
