Bear Hunting Revolvers?

On alot of our drives guys don't carry rifles simply because the swamps are just about impossible trying to break through. A few guys carry sidearms however. Just wondering what some of you gentlemen are carrying in those instances?

Re: Bear Hunting Pistols?

If I am handgunning only, I carry a Ruger Super Redhawk.

I am I carrying a rifle, I will also be carrying a Ruger Super Blackhawk.

Both are chambered in .44 Magnum.
