Yeah it's a bit fishy the way he just stood there like a wimp in the video after it ran off, i thought any respectable hunter worth his salt would go after it to finish it offSomething doesn't look right. I think photoshop. I know when I was working on the Northern Border the Native Americans would shoot a moose with a traditional bow and arrow and follow it for days til it dies.
I agree but did the tree in the middle of the frame look weird? Maybe photoshopped to look closer than it actually was.Yeah...it looked like he hit it too far back. It is certainly best to sit and wait for the animal to weaken and bleed out...there will likely be quite a blood trail. A modern compound bow is capable of taking Moose.
Yeah he probably went out with his bow against rabbits and squirrels and other small stuff, and when the moose came sniffing around he took a pot at it just for the hell of it, not good.This pisses me off big time, don't hunt animals you can't kill with the weapons you are using..
Not a hunter are you? Now see to me his body language says "I can't believe that I was lucky enough to find a bull moose to shoot and at such close range!" His body is full of adrenaline which happens whenever you have the opportunity to harvest an animal of that magnitude. Still happens to me after 25+ years of hunting whitetails and it's a great feeling. Anyone that hunts knows that feeling and once you know it you start to live for it.Yeah he probably went out with his bow against rabbits and squirrels and other small stuff, and when the moose came sniffing around he took a pot at it just for the hell of it, not good.
And his body language at the end seems to be saying "Oh my god, I can't believe I was such a jackass to do that!"
In his place I'd have either stood still til it went away, or if it began getting aggressive i'd have waved my arms and yelled at it to scare it off, i'd only put an arrow into it as a last defensive resort.
Anyway his kisser is now all over the internet, it'll be interesting to see if the Authorities (whoever they are) nail him for breaking the rules (if there are any).
