Looking for a handgun to be used for defense against predators and personal defense @ home. In the area I hunt, there are bears, coyotes, wild dogs, and at least 1 cougar. I know, not much different from anywhere else, but I am thinking I want to carry something while I am in the woods and not actively hunting, IE - no shotgun or rifle in my hand. Any suggestions and reasoning ? I have been looking at the Taurus Judge & the S&W Governor, but would like to hear others choices and why. Not stuck on any single one at this point. My main concern at this point is the wild dogs, as they have already chased one of our guys from his stand.
