One time? I was this close to a moose:
The day I got video of the moose is the same day I made this video:
Jen and I were sitting on a boat launch when the moose appeared. We set quietly and watched the moose--each of us thingking that if worse came to worse we could out run the other--until a truck pulled in and scared the moose away.
In other animal news: I wrote a post about dead deer that got tucked into my archives, so I thought I should give it a little bit of attention.
