What do you carry for a finisher if you have an animal that needs a little extra persuasion to make it to the freezer?
I have used everything from a feather quill on ducks to a 12 ga slug on deer as some of the states i have hunted in dont allow a small caliber handgun be carried while hunting. have also used a well placed knife.
Now mostly a handgun that is carried for closer range shots in a deer legal caliber.
Not trying to be gruesome but we all know it happens.

Usually whatever I was carrying in the first place. If it's a bird I wring it's neck.

I have a Ruger 22/45 that takes a suppressor I call my ?Not Dead Yet? Gun.

To date this S&W in 22 mag is my most used "finisher" shooting 40gr FMJ ammo... Will puncture just about anything.... I remember using a PP in 32acp and FMJ ammo that bounced off the skull of a large hog... Lately I carry the two inch model 63 pictured in my first post...
