    Default Huge bull moose nearly kills a hunter!

    fit. Thanks in advance!)

    You are gonna love this video!...Hunting with your barking dog...and a ***HUGE Bull Moose*** comes charging and nearly kills ya! I'm surprised the camera man didn't drop his camera and the hiker/hunter didn't put a 30/06 shot to the big ole moose!....As for me I'd probably panic and pee myself! That is a little too close for comfort!!!

    As many times as I've been charged by moose, I've only had one go all the way thru with attacking, and that a cow with a calf, they are pretty much bluffers whrn it comes to humans.....That would be pretty cool to have that happen.

    Watched it and must have missed the part where the moose nearly kills a hunter. I saw a couple of Swedish Hikers have a moose chase a dog, but that was about it.

    this one is much closer to "nearly kills" and actually has hunters in it.

    As many times as you've been charged by a moose? How many times could that possibly be? Were these moose accompanied by 3 legged bears?

    lol, seen a couple three legged bears, but never got charged by one...

    been charged by moose plenty of times...got stomped 2 winters back by an angry cow with a calf while i was shoveling sidewalks/ plowing snow for 18 hours straight and didnt notice them till it was too late as i walked thru a side yard in the dark....workmans comp claim filed and couldnt do **** for 2 weeks...still got a 5" long scar from a hoof on my hip that required 42 stitches....no broken bones luckily....

    last spring i was hiking around bird ridge and surprised a bull in his bed on top of a skinny ridge.....he charged unexpectedly and forced me down a pretty rugged cliff....i think maybe he had been harassed by wolves recently....

    got a few more if you want to hear.....

    I don't know about poorly trained? The dog is a Norwegian Elkhound (meaning moose dog). I would guess they are in Norway or Sweeden, were they can use dogs for Moose hunting. The dogs are to keep the moose at bay or circle it back to the hunters... looks like she did really good?

    I have been charged by moose but this was not a people charge, only a dog charge. They do not like dogs cause they are wolves in their own eyes. Looks like once he knows people are there, the moose go's off in another direction. I have video's of moose charging me, only because I called them in during the rut, they just thought I was another moose, not another human. When you call in a bull in rut, and leave your weapon leaning on a tree, then you know what helpless is...Been there and done that. Won't happen again but this flick does not show a hunter in danger, only a hunter in the field. Sorry Bud, it still is a cool flick though!!!!
    If a dipnetter dips a fish and there is no one around to see/hear it, Did he really dip?

    I am confused. You said you been charged by several moose but yet you agree with AlaskaHippie that young moose stop and flees upon seeing people? Which is it?????????? Do they chase you or do they run?

    Spooner, most of the moose ive been charged by were in here in town, and they broke off the charge when they would get within 10-15 feet and either hold their ground or retreat......they are used to people, where as that bull in the clip clearly was not...

    IME, if you hold your ground, they usually stop, unless they feel so threatened that they attack (only happened once so i dont know exactly and i was so ****in tired from workin i dont exactly remember every detail) but if you run, you can bet their gonna run right over you.....

    Most likely Norway. Hunters there are required to hunt elk(moose) with a Norwegian Elkhound. I have a friend that sends me pics of his hunts using the same dogs.
