It was 1978 and I was in grade 9 when this one particular moose encounter of the up close and personal kind took place.
I was snaring rabbits and was walking through the timber cutting and making snares without taking any attention to my surroundings when I stopped abruptly as there was a large bull moose not thirty feet in front of me and two more bulls to my right.
I Was Surrounded by Moose!
Then I realized that I walked into a herd of rutting moose. I slowly backed away when I saw a small calf not ten feet away and the mother right behind me. She had the fur raised on her back and her ears were pinned back. She was one agitated moose.
Well I started into running and I can tell you I didn't stop until I got home.
