Hold on to your hunting hat! This dare devil reacts not a moment too soon.
A charging bull moose, throttling like a freight train toward you, is one thrilling, yet awfully scary sight. Best make your shot count, unless your wish is to never walk the woods again.

I bet he’s glad it wasn’t archery season.
