i observed a young bull moose late this fall with his right horn busted at his skull! i swear i was seeing brain matter in the binos...didnt get any pictures unfortunately but it was very interesting, though a bit of a sad sight. i wouldnt think he could have made it much longer. he was in poor shape when i saw him come down a little drainage directly below me as i glassed for bear. watched him at sixty yrds or so with my spotting scope and it was absolutley broken at the skull...anyone else seen this.
he was in the same country with a bunch of larger bulls and i think he picked his last fight.
anybody observed this. i've seen a bunch of moose, and lots of broken horns, but never at the base. my boss has observed this as well...more than once. that's just gotta hurt. crazy what a guy will do for a shot of tail!
