This would certainly be unexpected…

Here’s what a hunter in the Dillon area experienced on October 24th.

“I was by myself going out for a deer/elk hunt on opening morning. I had just stood up to stretch my legs after sitting for a while. Off to the side of me, I noticed a set of antlers coming towards me, on the other side of the willows. I carefully pulled out my phone and started recording, hoping I could get a good video of the animal as it came into the general area. I was never expecting it to be a moose and definitely wasn’t expecting it to come so close to me. I stayed as still as I could while trying to control my breathing. I didn’t even look directly at the moose until he was past me, so it was nice to have the video to really get a good look at him after. A little nerve-racking, but an amazing experience nonetheless.”
