A Colorado teen, Rose Hill, is also a competitive shooter. Her shooting skills helped her in a recent bear encounter. A black bear broke into the garage looking for food. According to KDVR.com, Hill ran to get her pair of shotguns used for competitive shooting. In a matter of seconds she decided to fire, taking all six of her shells before the bear went down.

Hill had been hunting, shooting and competing for the last few years before this bear encounter. Thanks to her outdoors experience, she was able to defend herself and gain the title "Grizzly" Rose Hill from the locals of Baily and Park County.
