45 cal.  Hope i never need it.  Cats and bears are a concern, but hunting public land I'm probably more concerned about stumbling into some druggy and his little pot farm.  Like I said, I hope I never need it but I think it's worth carrying just in case.

I pack a .40 just in case I run into any predators with an attitude.

When I hunt Montana I carry my Glock Model 22, 40 S & W when I am scouting, I only rifle hunt, so once the Season starts I just carry my Rifle.
there are to many critters up there that might want me for dinner, so I never leave camp without a gun.

I don't carry a pistol, I don't have one, but if I did have one, I still probably wouldn't, just extra weight.

I have always packed one. After this year I always will. My 12 year old son and I were working a big 6 point bull when I heard loud puffing noises. Looked to the left and a black bear sow and two cubs were coming to my son calling. One cub went behind him and the sow immediately charged when she saw him. I don't even remember what I did with my bow, but I put two rounds in front of her feet, It stopped her and the cubs took off. One more step and I would have shot her. We put our packs back on and were a little shook up, when she came back. I grabbed my son and slowly walked backwards up the mountain.  Called Mom later that evening and she drove 4 hours with some bear spray for my son. :)

I carry a Taurus 24/7 9mm 17 rd clip.
I don't hunt bow anymore,but always have it scouting, guiding,hunting.  For cats,bears,follow up shots and 2 legged critters. 
It's a county ordinance here that every household have a firearm for protection....no crime to speak of here.

Dont bow hunt, but when I am scouting and shed hunting I always have my .45 ACP (cats scare me more than anything). And when I am flyfishing, I normally carry my .380 (more thinking about problem 2 legged critters).

bear spray, and my 12 gauge in a tac sling.  Added weight, yes, but I dont worry about if its going to stop what I shooting if it comes to it.  Had Wolves push me off a mountain, 6 yearsago and i felt at that time my 9mm was not going to be enough, too many of them...

I recenctly got a 9mm xd just for bow season. Its my first pistol but im already thinking I should have bought the .45 for a little more peice of mind. I Figured a 16 shot clip should be enough when I got the 9mm to scare anything off. Especially 2 legged critters.
