    Will a 22.Mag kill a Bear, Mountain Lion or any predator I could run into in the woods Big Game Hunting I would of coarse shoot with my rifle first if I could. It would be on my hip it has a 5 in. Barrel 6 shot cylinder. I have no problems with it I usually carry 6 more shots or a lil' more

    Very unlikely that it would kill a predator instantly

    I knew that but I probably would through more than one bullet out there maybe 3 at first and then one in the back of the head just to make sure

    No. But shooting a predator with one will likely get you killed by the predator.

    A predator may die after being shot with a .22 Mag, but it will likely die from infection 3-4 days after it has ripped out your throat.

    This is EXTREMELY high on the "REALLY bad idea" list.

    Ok thank you so it wouldn't work for a bobcat cause I'd use it s for about 25 yards or closer but Id fight till the end Id use my knife if I had to I know that would do the job but I'd look ugly

    Your best bet is to go with an adult that has something much larger than a .22 mag.
