    "To my mind it is wholly irresponsible to go into the world incapable of preventing violence, injury, crime, and death. How feeble is the mindset to accept defenselessness. How unnatural. How cheap. How cowardly. How pathetic." Ted Nugent

    This is a serious problem among coyotes. I remember seeing one on the road while driving Highway 59 near Bay City, TX. I heard the locals hate them in these parts.

I shot the hog twice with my 9mm with a 147 grain hydrashock. It had no major effect but only scared it. I now take either my Sig 220 45 or my Smith&Wesson 686 357 revolver when I go hiking. I shot another boar in July 2008 in Sam Houston National Forest when I ventured off the trail and into a a small ravine with my 357 revolver and it dropped fast.
    It really depends on the area I am heading into. Predator country gets a bigger, but harder to carry, pistol while hiking. General hiking use is a 1911, typically go to a 44 mag or 357 mag for predator country.

    Anyone hear about that rabid mountain lion in Co. Springs last month? Crazy stuff.
