I'm interested in what's in your holster on the opening day of hunting season, and why. A Magnum Revolver? Large Capacity Semi-auto? I spent allot of time shooting silhouette pistol a long time ago. Chickens @ 100, Pigs @ 200, Turkeys @ 300, Rams @ 400. At that time I used a single action 7 1/2 .44 Mag and eventually an 8 inch Dan Wesson. As times changed and range space became harder to come by, the NRA Hunters Pistol Course (chickens @ 25, pigs @ 50, turkeys @75, rams @ 100) I moved to the 22 LR in a 8 inch Dan Wesson. So many years ago at the upper edges of America and points further North I carried a .44 Mag Dan Wesson sporting the 4 inch barrel as a backup, and at times as a primary Hunting Weapon. After many years the Dan Wesson had it's first failure to fire, but as a double action revolver I just pulled the trigger again and bang. (then it became time to worry about the dud.) So it was time for a change. So what's your in the woods sidearm?
