9mm will work great. I had to put 2 it a cat some years back with my 45 and he didn't like it at all. 2 through tje shoulder and he was still fighting. Pretty tuff buggers. Just shoot to kill not scare and you'll be fine.

It's your life you are writing about. Don't cheap out, buy a gun for the job at hand.
Will 9mm work?
Yest it will.
I know a guy who temple shot a deer in his garden and dropped it like a hot potato.
 Is it advisable, he'll no, but it did kill the deer.
That's like the story of the guy killing a grizzly with a 9mm pistol, he got lucky.

I worked with a guy who use to be a gang banger until he got shot nine times with a 9mm pistol and lived. That ended his gang banger days.
Buy what you want, but personally I bought a Glock 20 in 10mm for woods carry.
It is only money, you can scrape it up over time.

lol.. That guy who you say "got lucky" forgot more about killing large brown bears taking a dump this morning than the combined knowledge of everyone on this website. (Including me!)

He is world renowned and has 4 decades of living in the bush.

I carry the XD-M 10mm with a TLR-6 light/lazer.
