“It was lucky that it was recorded on film. If it had not been documented, no one would have believed me afterwards, but now it became a decent action film.
I must also praise the photographer, considering how exciting it was, the picture is very stable all the time.”
With about 500 pound of meat when it was all said and done, Mats said that final shot was only a few feet away:
“There was some energy in motion when he came charging. The third and final shot was fired at about 1.5 meters away and there was a cross stop. Had it not stopped there, the bull would have run straight over me, so it was lucky that it went well after all.
It shows once again that hunting is hunting, you can never take anything for granted. When hunting, anything can happen.”
The look on his face says it all… that’s one lucky SOB.
Montana Man Goes To Check His Mail, Gets Charged By A Moose Instead
Moose are one the most amazing creatures to roam the lands.
The largest around North America, and by far, one of the coolest to see.
They are however, one of the most dangerous. Known to get very defensive over their young, in the rut, and in general due to their poor eye sight and size, they’ll think nothing of running your ass clean over.
And this Bozeman, Montana, man certainly found that out first hand.
He heads outside and you notice a moose across the road standing up. It almost seems as though he knows its there and that he’s going to check it out.
But… he doesn’t.
Completely oblivious, he starts to turn his back to it without ever seeing it, and as it takes the first few steps towards him, he looks up and clearly is completely surprised at what is standing in front of him.
“Went to check the mail and I did not realize a moose was staring me down from across the street.
It began to charge me and my dog Reecey barked and let me know we were in danger.
She lunged at the moose then circled back and we both high-tailed it inside.
No harm, no foul…
But let’s skip on the morning coffee and go for the ol’ morning moose charge… I feel like that would wake you up a bit better. If this wasn’t feeling awake, he definitely was after that.
