Bull Moose Gets Shot At Very Close Range
This was a daring hunt, the bull moose gets shot at very close range. When you encounter a moose in the wild, you should take great care not to antagonize, or piss the animal off, because they will attack you. Both male and females are very large and very aggressive. Since the law allows for hunting, I don’t want to hear any crap from some bleeding heart liberal, about a poor defenseless moose being shot.
This was a legal hunt and the meat from this animal will feed a family of 5, for at LEAST six months. Also, since this hunt was obviously filmed in Norway, I’m sure that the hunter had to jump through several legal hoops to get a permit to hunt this animal (some of which I will place beneath the video). One observation I will make, normally you should never let a bull moose get this close before shooting it. Since they are very large and heavily muscled, unless you are packing a large caliber rifle, it might not have brought the animal down. Even so, the hunter in this video was lucky the first shot severely injured the animal enough to make it turn away and of course, the second shot finished the animal off. This was a good kill.
According to The Brønnøysund Register Centre :
In order to register in The Norwegian Register of Hunters and thus to qualify for hunting in Norway, you must pass the Hunting Proficiency Test (Jegerprøve) to obtain a hunting License.
You may hunt large game with a rifle if you have successfully completed the annual hunting proficiency test the same year you are hunting. However, if you live permanently abroad, the hunting proficiency test is unnecessary provided you meet the requirements for large game hunting in your country of residence. Documentary proof to that effect must be presented on demand to police, game wardens, and representatives from the Norwegian Nature Inspectorate or local hunting inspectors. You may email this documentation to the Hunting Register.
Foreign Hunters meeting these requirements will be registered in the Hunting Register and will receive a hunting license. Foreign hunters are required, as are Norwegian hunters, to pay a hunting license fee in order to conduct hunting and trapping in Norway. You are required to keep the valid hunting license on hand at all times when you are hunting or trapping.
