Team HuntingLife Pro Staffer Taylor Rather(15 years old) took this 500lb Bruin Manitoba with Sandy River Outfitters using a 308 shooting Federal Premium with Barnes Triple Shock Bullets tipped in 180 grain. This was her 2nd day of hunting and after an unsuccessful spot and stalk on another bear this bruiser walked in underneath the stand from behind. Taylor kept her composure and took a great shot with the bear going 20 yards before expiring on the edge of the meadow.
