    I know that for bears the bear spray works best. I actually carry my pistol while hiking because of humans and my concern about animals is secondary. I think around here the only reason an animal would attack me is if I frightened it. Thank you for all of the replies. Shot placement seems to still ring true.

    In the woods I carry my 44mag, and leave the 9mm for everyday carry. Although I belive my 9mm would be sufficient, for defense. It is just nice to have the extended range of the 44mag when in the woods.
