I have a problem and am looking for practical advice. There is a really irritating 2 year old bull moose, kicked out of the nest because he is a s*it I bet, that really wants to be "steaks on grill", if you get my drift. I have had a few run ins with him this winter on hikes, and he always comes out of no where and in a bad spot on a hillside. Folks that live in the area say he routinely will charge them and there dogs in there own yard! He will charge the trail, from deep cover where you don't even know he is, to make sure you are below his eye line. If you get above him, he will charge...survival technique I guess. I know how to keep a tree or two between us, but he caused me to spend 6 hours on a 1 hour hike recently (long story with a lost, then found dog). Going the other way was not an option on this trip, and I easily could have had about 50-75 foot drop over an edge at one point. So I was thinking...instead of something lethal...has anyone ever tried using Bear Spray on a moose? Does it have any effect on them? I usually have one or two dogs with me and he has no fear of them at all Thanks for any input.
