The Encore Pro Hunter was originally developed for hunting moose in the thick cedar swamps of northern Maine. Its fast handling, compact design is ideal for hunting large game in the brush country. The combination of its 20 barrel, adjustable rear peep sight, and fiber-optic front sight teamed with hard-hitting caliber clearly demonstrate its brush-busting capabilities. All of this in a 7 pound, 34.5 package that includes a recoil-taming Flex-Tech stock and Simms recoil pad, the Pro Hunter Katahdin handles and shoots as good as it looks. This model is chambered in 500 Smith & Wesson Magnum.
