Boulder Junction youngster gets first bearSubmitted: 09/19/2013
Story By Joe Dufek


VILAS COUNTY - The Northwoods is well known for deer, waterfowl, and turkey hunting.

Bear hunting is also well underway.

One Northwoods youngster had quite a moment last week.

This is 11-year old Mya Towne from Boulder Junction. Mya was hunting with a mentor in Vilas County.

Using bait which included Grenola, Mya saw this 2-year old adult. The beauty of the animal was a little intimidating at first. But after about 15 minutes, she dropped the bear with one shot. It weighed 200 pounds. She was using a youth model .308 rifle.


It was her first bear. Congratulations Mya.
