Sounds more like the moose contacted him? Hope he will be alright.
My brother and I ran across a bull one morning, and you could tell he was just dying to find somebody’s ass to kick. NOT “looking for an excuse to” ; just the opportunity would suffice….
So my brother knelt down, hid behind the barrel of his .58, and froze like a cottontail until the bull apparently decided that there was no ass there to be kicked after all. He may have been guarding a hot cow, I suppose….
But that was one helluva stand-off at about 5 yards…. That’s the only time I ever felt potentially undergunned while carrying my .54…
Hope the guy’s alright. Kinda surprised, though, that nobody had figured out the need for a tourniquet sooner than the deputy.
The first lesson they taught in college level creative writing was to create a story to captivate the audience. I agree that a moose linebacker sacking a would be hunter and intended killer is cause enough to read on. But, there is zero chance the author left out the wounded part.
On a serious note, I pray the guy heals quickly and completely.
