Slug Gun for Bear?

Any opinions on whether using a Remington 870 slug gun with Winchester super X sabots is enough gun for bear?

No it's a 12 guage. I was carrying a 44 mag but the guys want me to carry something with a little more range.

That's what alot of bear guides carry for back up, so why not. A 12ga. slug is a mean round.

I use the Winchester Partition Gold sabots on bear. I've killed two bears with them and two guys I hunt with have each killed a bear with them.

A haiku is just like a normal American poem, except it doesnt rhyme and is totally stupid.

Slug guns are more than enough for bear! Good luck!
