Interesting article in the new American Rifleman, world renowned African Professional Hunter Harry Selby who carried a Colt Woodsman 22 on his hip for years. Harry loved the slick little semi-auto and used it to pot small game, and also to finish off wounded game animals at times. I personally have had a love affair with this model and have carried one for years while on the trap line or following my hounds in rugged country after cougar. Although not ideal at times the best tool is the one you have at hand and can use well and I recall once when I had to dispatch a very angry and wounded black bear that had been shot by another hunter in a non-vital place. I would have much preferred a big bore handgun or better yet a rifle the ever present Woodsman was up to the task and dropped the bruin as he savaged hounds on the ground in front of me. a tiny .22 pill at the base of the head and spine ended the ordeal. As the old saying goes ( better than a sharp stick). My wife used the same gun to kill with one shot I may add a large mountain lion bayed by the hounds last season. And yes rimfires were legal where we were hunting. She was amazed at how lethal a high speed 22 hollowpoint can be. She shoots very well and thus another old saying ; put the pill where the pain is certainly works.
