Cost of the wine does not matter as much as the volume to make it edible.

Personally, I'm down with the 44Mag BUG when hunting.

As to wine, get the good stuff. You only live once, and it's somewhat

of a celebration, inasmuch as you lived longer than the bear...

I find it funny that this is almost the exact same kinda responses that were given when I asked about using my .40 as a BUG against 150lb hogs a few months ago. So I need the same big*** gun for a 150lb pig that I would against a 500lb bear?

The boar, face-on, presents a very small, moving, thick, tough target. So

actually, yes. Sorry if that's an inconvenience to you.

I'd be happy with a .357 Mag for bears .... not quite as cumbersome as a .44 might make the difference for follow up shots
