    I recommend checking regulations for your hunt area for legality of carrying a gun during bow season. Wyoming does or did have regulations against carrying a firearm during bow season. I just tried to find in current regulations for reference and was unable to find it. A check of the regulations would be a good idea. I carry bear spray while in the mountains but always feel better when I have a gun along also!

    True on the Nevada statement above. I always choose to draw a mtn lion tag if successful in the deer draw and if I am caught with a side arm I have a valid kitty tag to fight the case.

    They just barely changed the regulations for carrying a handgun while bowhunting in Wyoming.. i think it was like a year ago that they changed it to where you are allowed to.

    Washington just did the same thing. Ive read though if you fight it in a state that has a law against it you can win, Federal law (2nd amendment) always over rides state law. Not sure if its true but it does make sense.

    I just bought a Ruger GP100 .357 mag.
    It is fun to shoot, and should be sufficient in a black bear/ mountain lion situation.

    bear spray is probably your best option for bears!

    How do you like that Glock 20? I've been thinking hard about buying one. I currently run a Kimber 1911, and bear spray. My plan is to spray the bear with the bear spray, and then finish him off with the .45
    My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives.
