Default Sledder vs Moose

What would you do in a situation like this?

I dont think I would go that far....maybe a warning shot?

There were sled tracks where he 1st stopped . He should have followed em . Prosecute this asshat , take his hunting , fishing , sledding and atv'ing privileges and his RIGHT to carry a sidearm

What a total asshole he should be thrown in jail and should have all his gun carrying rights removed! Everyone knows you never approach a moose, he kept driving towards it and could see it wasn't going to move, then it charged and he didn't back off it. This video and person pissed me off. Then he wounded the animal and didn't finish it off.

I dont know it looked like he didnt have many options. A warning shot may have slowed him down but that thing wanted to attack. I agree finishing him off would have been the most humane thing to do...

If you look the first shot he fired at him that thing was still moving forward I dont thing the warning shot was stopping him he was on a mission

After the moose initially attacked, it started walking off....then this dip sh*t decides to ride/move forward. He should have just stayed where he was at the very minimum, then fired if it tried attacking him again. Maybe he should have tried backing up, though we all know that's somewhat difficult to do in narrow areas and having someone behind you. Poor decision making on his part.

On the other hand Moose taste great!! Do you guys carry a gun snowmobiling?? Seriously I think a few warning shots would have helped or made me feel like the guy tried to save the Moose.

This guy is a complete idiot, he should have staid where he was when he FIRST stopped,if you have to wait you wait, he would have moved on most likely, you don't make aggressive moves on a moose, especially on a narrow trail with the snow so deep.

You guys are right after looking at it a second time the guy did provoke the Moose what a d-bag. Kinda sad IMO.

Was the guy over zealous maybe, but once that thing jumped on me and the machine, I might have done the same thing hard to say when your dealing with an animal of that size. Dont know the situation was there the ability to back out go around, I dont know.

If he had stayed where he was after the first approach it would have left him alone. If he had stayed where he was after the second approach when it jumped at him again it would have left him alone, it was walking away for the second time. Whats this idiot do, drive forward again for the 3rd time. This guy just doesn't learn... the wrong animal died that day lol. I hope he at least went back for it and didn't leave it there. Who caries a gun sledding!?!?!?... I won't go there.
