I have booked weekend away in north wales stalking Bara Brith in snowdonia. I know these are illusive animals and often they are baited to get them within shot. I am not sure what kit to take. I have the choice of a parkerhale 1200 in .30-06 which is uber accurate in 150 grain game kings but is a bit of a lug to carry. I also have a ruger .243 which is pretty good with 100 grain hornady spitzers, this is a light and managable rifle but I am a bit worried about it's knock down ability. The last thing i want to do is spend most of the weekend tracking a wounded animal around snowdonia when i could be loafing about.
Any suggestions would be most helpful.
