Usually whatever I was carrying in the first place. If it's a bird I wring it's neck.
Yup if its worth one shot its worth two.

I MOST ALWAYS CARRY A HOLSTERED REVOLVER WHEN HUNTING OR DOING CHORES ON SOME RANCH, THE REVOLVER IS USUALLY A 45 COLT, BUT SOMETIMES MAY BE A 357, A 44 SPECIAL, A 45 AR, OR A 480. ONE OF THESE REVOLVERS CHORES IS FINISHERS.

Usually the same game that started the fight, or a knife. Once in Texas it was a mesquite club.

I appreciate simplicity, so I've never carried a second pistol to use as a finisher. I either use whatever I'm hunting with, or, a knife to the heart.

A friend carried a 2 inch barrel S&W Kit Gun in .22 LR for tht purpose when small game hunting.

I've always used whatever I was carrying for big game and my hands or a knife for small game.

Same gun as I made the first shot with. 95% of the game I hunt here in western Montana I have to bone out and pack out on my back, so I carry as little weight as possible.

Not so mush as a finisher, but something for pest etc. Usually one of my LCRx revolvers in 22 or 38. Never go to my timber w/o a gun.
When bear hunting I carry my Super Redhawk Alaskan in 44.

When handgun hunting I use whatever I happen to be hunting with at the time.
