Just a .22..

I look at it this way. I don't have to be fast. I just have to shoot anyone of you guy's in the foot and be faster than YOU!

:p
True story on this note...

Someone once asked me what handgun I'd like to have if we were hunting together and has a bear charge us...here's the exchange:

Buddy: "What would stop the bear?
Me: I could stop the bear with a .22 Short..maybe two.
Buddy: Head shot?
Me: Nope...kneecap...
Buddy: Really?
Me: Yep...*yours*...at that point...I think I could outrun you after that...

We both got a good laugh, because he actually was taking me seriously up to that point...

I don't think Ruger sells an RPG

That is one really big boy. I don't think it would matter what was in my hand, I'd just stay real still and let him wander away.......

No gun needed if it is like other moose I have seen on trails in Upper Michigan. The Michigan deer are smaller, but I never felt threatened as long as I stood still.
Lol, note the "Yukon" location from my Northern brother(no not an SUV here in Canada). That be the real deal, 7mm Magnum for me please.

Find two sturdy trees planted closer than the width of his rack, pray for a 10mm or 45/70 to drop from the sky, put your head between your legs, kiss your....

Looks like lots of lunch on the hoof to me, providing season is open! No doubt a big Alaska/Yukon moose can go 8- 9' at the top of the shoulder, them boys got some long legs fo sure! I would mention that the trail he's crossing looks a lot more like a double wide hiking trail than an interstate, you might be able to drive a truck down it but you'll be buffing out brush scratches for a month!
I thought the same. Looks like a 4 wheeler or side by side path. Nice bull though. Ive seen too many videos of guys getting plowed shooting a bull that close. I believe since he is headed the other way, Id just let him go and be thankful he wasnt in a bad mood.

Those guys were obviously hunting that bear. Mongolian maybe :confused: . And bear hunting is a big thing with them. The bear appeared to have been having trouble with his rear legs, so was probably wounded,, and they certainly were expecting him to charge. so,,,,.

I bet that is a 4 wheeler/snowmobile trail, makes him look ungodly huge. still is a big moose though.

10mm on my belt.
I'd let him go, I want a younger better eating animal.

If I am out hiking in brown bear or moose country, I would carry my Super Redhawk .454 Casull.

If I was hunting them, I would carry my M-77 Hawkeye in .338 WinMag or my CZ .416 Rigby.

I love my 10mm so that in a SR1911.
Until I could get a Glock M40 with 16 rounds of FMJ.

But only for desperate self-defense. That majestic moose should live, the earth needs more moose and fewer people.

I don't know what I would want. I have seen moose up close and personal before and have carried different guns, 12ga, .270, 22lr, and I felt under gunned. Every time I have seen moose I went my way and they watched me leave or went their way.
