I was recently contacted by The Bernard & Associates Team and asked if I could help post a few articles from their up coming issue of Sporting Classics. Me being the helpful guy I am and loving stories about the outdoors I gladly accepted the offer. For a good story keep on reading.
By John Seerey-Lester
The prospector’s desperate cries echoed across the silent snowscape. Purvis skied as fast as he could around the thicket and shot the monster as it continued to stomp on his friend. The only effect of the bullet was to redirect the bull’s attention on Purvis. The animal charged the prospector, moving effortlessly through the snow. Purvis managed to grab a tree branch, hoping to swing out of harm’s way.
As the beast hurtled past, it raised its huge antlers in an effort to gore Purvis, but missed. The moose continued high-stepping through the snow and was never seen again.
The old hunter went to the prospector’s aid, but found him badly wounded, his chest crushed under the relentless onslaught of the animal’s heavy hooves.
Purvis did what he could to save Pingree, but the poor man died within a few hours. The entire incident, which had lasted only a few seconds, showed just how dangerous a bull moose could be.
