Couple things. Seems after the shoot he drove down the trail to the clearing and turned around to make sure the other machine was behind him. Could have been a wife, his kid or whatever but likely wanted them both clear out of the danger area. I'm guessing he went back to finish it.Ten things wrong with that. I'd lock that guy up. He didn't even finish the job.
Hunting season or not, you don't hunt moose with a glock. He and his buddy could have walked over to the side in the tree line and let the moose pass by. The moose was using the smooth trail, perfectly normal behavior for the animal. Pull over and let him pass.
You make a lot of guesses in this guys favor.Couple things. Seems after the shoot he drove down the trail to the clearing and turned around to make sure the other machine was behind him.

He wasn't hunting moose with a Glock, he used it in what he perceived a self defense situation.
If that were me, the moose attacked once already, I'm not getting off my machine into high snow on foot to deal with a pissed off bull winkle who show its intent already. I can out run a moose on grass let alone knee high snow. I also don't see a lot of room to move over to let a worked up moose pass on by and thank the two riders with sharp hooves to the throat. Many people have been killed by moose.
The problem with the shoot is he had plenty of distance and options other than to charge the moose. It's very clear.I have a serious question. And I'm glossing over how they came to encounter each other except to note that the moose and snowmobile appear to be heading towards each other from the fist instance in the video. Before I ask the question, I ask that we have the discussion civilly, without emotional responses or name calling. The instant this discussion devolves, I'll check out.
Here is the question: For those advocating for the moose, what would it have taken for you to consider this a good shoot? Put differently, at what point would you have considered you own life in danger?
Full disclosure: The glaring mistake I see was carrying an empty gun.
