In the TAIGA level you will eventually come up to a nice church on the hill that was pointed out to you at the very beginning of the mission. You want to have at least 3 molotovs and about 15 crossbow bolts by the time you enter that area. At this stage TAKE YOUR TIME and collect all the arrows and molotov cocktails lying around - there is a bunch of arrows stuck in the wooden crosses close to the entry to the location and there is a molotov right behind the rope that you need to interact with.

Then you need to get to the gates and interact with the rope to the left of the gate to make the Bear attack you. The Bear won't spawn until you do this so take you time and collect resources to make sure you are prepared.

After the Bear reveals itself it is a straightforward engagement. The tactics are as follow - throw a molotov (you want a direct hit), move away, shoot him with 3-4 arrows while he rolls around (aim either for his face or the underbelly - if you have a scope on your crossbow take it off, it's easier to aim using the iron sights), and wait until the flames die down, at which point you can toss another molotov (so don't throw them all at once, wait until the flames disappear to deal maximum damage). While you can afford to get closer to toss the molotov, as it stuns the bear, make sure you move away immediately afterwards, as he will soon charge at you. Always be aware of your surroundings and have an open route you can use to dodge the charge as it deals a good amount of damage. The Bear can also be stunned during his charge if you toss a molotov at him as he charges towards you.

After you deal enough damage the Bear will retreat and the achievement will pop. Importantly, you won't be getting any of your bolts that got stuck in him back, so ration them accordingly.
