I had to detour around a moose once during a meet in Anchorage. You definitely don't want to argue with a moose!
Yeah just the size is pretty intimidating. Then you add the antlers and there's no desire to even come close to em. Uber jealous you've orienteered in AK. I still haven't even stepped foot in AK. Someday....
This is actually my 2nd run-in with a moose. The first time was up in Medicine Bow Natl Forest WY where I was course vetting and I ran around a hill only to pop out of the corner to see a giant moose turn its head and stare me down so I promptly reversed course and got out of there.
Forgot to mention on my log we had friends come as first timers. 9 total! They had a great time and a couple of the teenage boys have some outstanding potential.
