    I'd have done the same.

    Although I would have made sure the Moose was dead.

    And I would have used all the Meat Too.

    Cheers

    Except I think it would open him up to poaching charges

    Beavis is on the money I reckon, woulda copped serious trouble if he had of killed it after it stopped attacking and then taken the meat.

    This is self defense, not hunting. The animal is down, I personally would not be walking up to it shoot it again in case it jumped back up and legged me in the face.

    I'd do the same too.
    He didn't want to shoot it, seen as how he tried to scare it off first. Then the moose threw the first punch, self defence i reckon haha. At least the moose fought back.

    We are all hypocrites if we think this is bad, we all walk into the bush,shoot things that have no idea they are in danger and have no chance of defending themselves, then walk around with our chests puffed out like we're the shit.

    He should have tilted the pistol sideways as he drove past and put it out of misery though i think.

    Yeah Frosty, call me a hypocrite then

    What I see in that clip is a guy who has just about no patience, antagonized the moose into attacking, and then did not have the decency or balls to check that the animal was killed cleanly, just rode past like a pussy.

    What is shown in that clip, and what I do hunting for meat has absolutely no relation to each other...

    +1 absolutely no respect for the animal. I think its crap. Could have waited for it to move off.

    We can be all high and mighty and howly bag in retrospect, but we don't know what circumstances the guys were in. Perhaps they had somewhere to be before the sun went down or a blizzard came in. I would imagine the guy wanted to gtfo before it got back up and had another go. Also bear in mind the possibility of somebody coming along just after you've plugged it in the head. Perhaps he is just a jumpy fuckwit, we don't know all the facts.

    As soon as it was down he gaped it straight away. I think he was shit scared of it and I don't blame him.

    It looked pretty fucked when he left. I've seen animals kick a bit after the shot when dropping like that.

    Thats crap, instead of following the trail made by other snow mobiles he could of gone around the animal instead of winding it up, plus leaving a wounded animal out there is shocking.

    Up until he pulled out his glock and shot the moose he was doing the right thing, standing on his snowmobile shouting and revving in an attempt to scare it off. Some older snowmobiles didn't have reverse (not likely to be the case here) and trails will often be surrounded by thick growth or uneven ground so a speedy get away might not have been an option seeing as he passed up what might have been a trail on his left (or potentially a turn-around). I've done almost exactly what he did more than once and it has always worked. Still a terrible waste of meat though!

    Its easy for heros on forums to sit there and call foul on things that they were not involved with, shoulda/ coulda /woulda yea wotever. We have no idea other than what we see.

    And yes big fat Hypocrite, at the end of the day no matter how much respect u think you have for the animal..........u still killed the thing. No amount of hugs and hairy fairy shit ain't going to change that fact.
