    leave the .22 cal at home for thses game animals,crippled animals die an agonizing death.I wouldn't want to meet the lion that had been forced to starve because someone failed to place the proper bullet right.

    @DSM,
    I think I wore myself out more in the process. I went to bed at 3:00 and had to get up at 6:00 to get everything done before it started to rain.

    I don't think there's any state where a 13 year old can legally carry a handgun by themselves, so I think that what kind of pistol you should get is kind of a moot point. If it'll make you feel better, I don't think a backup handgun is super important for coyote/bobcat hunting; for mountain lions maybe, but they aren't exactly numerous in MN anyway. Sorry...

    Depends on your local market. I would go to a local gun shop(without the intention of buying or selling) ask ask them what you could get for the rifle/What the Winchester '94s are going for in your area. Like I said, do not be in a hurry to do this. Talk to your dad etc. and make sure the decision is right for you. One thing I have to say is that the '94 has proven itself for over 100 years as an extremely good rifle(In other words, if you miss you know it is your fault, not the rifles. I hear scope hunters blame the scope getting bumped way too often...lol). I have taken hail mary follow up shots through extremely thick brush and the round bullet still gets through it(I have seen .30-06/7mm mag bullets get stopped by brush my .30-30 would laugh at).

    But take some time to think about it, no need to be in a hurry. Another think you could check out is Hornady's new LEVERution ammunition. I choose not to use it, but I have heard that it increases distance/accuracy quite a bit. One disadvantage is that you can not hold as many rounds in the gun(they are longer than traditional ammunition).

    If you choose to get a rifle I certainly recommend the Winchester '94 in .30-30(Could probably get one for around 400-500 in good condition). It will have to be used (make sure it is from before 1990 and has a good wood stock), the new ones are way over priced and quite frankly look cheap. I have killed an elk and black bear with my .30-30 (neither were giant, but it had no problem taking them down). The gun can hold 7 rounds of traditional ammunition, and with the lever action you can put them on target pretty damn fast. I have shot it my entire life, but with iron sights I can hit a deer sized target at 150 yards free handed with every shot. You would be surprised at how much easier a follow up shot(or moving shot) with iron sights is compared to a scoped rifle with some practice(It is rare when I do not get atleast two shots on a deer before it is out of view, even in thick woods). I have never touched the iron sights ever since I initially sighted it in. I have dropped it 20+ feet while climbing into my tree stand and never even worried about the sights being off(good luck doing that with a scope). To be honest, I wouldn't be surprised if you started to prefer it over a scoped .223/.243 after using it. The recoil is really light by the way, it is often compared to a .223/.243.
