Think about it. You tell a friend you killed a moose with a 30-06 at 100 yards.

Or

You killed a moose with a big goddamn stick at point blank range.

Which scenario is more badass and makes a better campfire story?

I guess the story about a moose trampling my ass is definitely a more interesting one.

Had a moose charge me once, it's one of my more interesting moments.

No, it isn't, regardless of how many times you repeat it.

What is the point of hunting moose?

Meat.

It's not about badass or stories. It's about meat.

We have grocery stores in most places in the 21st century.

You still think most hunters are doing it for survival? Or for sport?
