In all seriousness though its pretty sad that you even have to worry about coming across a pot farm especially if you're in a national park.

Good thing about the deserts around Phoenix is I haven't run across one yet. Although if you go too far south you may hit the supply line! (But that's another thread there)

I have run across too many in my time. Last one was stealing water from one of my springs. As the cops were escorting them out (after I escorted them in and showed them around the site) the one cop says "You guys are lucky that you are going to jail. If the guy who owns that spring found you there he would just kill you."

The 45-70 is tops for a gun when concerned with dangerous game. But that wasn't in the poll.
I like my jewelry with a little more sparkle to it:

Actually pot farms are found in many national and state parks. Even up here in Denali.

A 44 magnum produces about 900 ft/lbs of muzzle energy.

A 500 S&W produces about 2400 ft/lbs of muzzle energy.

An AR15 5.56 produces about 1300 ft/lbs of muzzle energy.

The odds of putting multiple shots on target are far greater with the carbine than any of the pistols. Penetration would likely be better as well. So if I'm not backpacking and trying to minimize weight to the 10th of the ounce, why wouldn't I just pull the AR out of the bag in the trunk and take that with me?
Don't get me wrong, I'm fairly excited to see what my 5.56

AR can do with 75 or 80 grain hunting rounds. But at an "OH

SHIRT !" moment, are you going to be carrying your AR with

you?

Furthermore, in this instance the slower, fatter .44 is going

to do more damage than the .223 slug, even at a lower

MV.

Personally, I would be more concerned that while a .44 pistol

is faster on target, and more likely to be easier to carry, that

AR will either get slung, or be harder to bring the muzzle into

play. This is close-in action, for all the chips. If you have the

time to set up for a rifle shot, you have time to bug out.

AR. If expecting bears, alternating dpx rounds with green tips, along with the pointability of a short rifle, would be kinda handy.

What might be even more handy would be a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, heavy on the pb. Throw it in front of him to buy some time, and haul a$$ to the car.

Better yet, how about a slow friend?
