If that idiot invites me to go hunting I'm staying home.

better judged by twelve than carried by six.

I think he probably had enough gun, alright. The mistake? I'd guess he shot at "the brisket". Moose are a big target and a hunter who gets a tad glassy-eyed will just shoot at it or shoot at the shoulder - or the brisket. Nope. Shoot at the heart when they're face on. This has always been true: "Aim small, miss small."

Second, he fired one shot and left to walk up on it. Nope. You get another load up the pipe and stand there. Wait 2-3 minutes at least. If it gets up, put another one into it right now. Too many times a hunter will shoot once and then wait for an animal to drop/die. That's not a good idea, specially with moose.

Awesome video, tho.

I'd hunt with him in a minute. He seems like a slightly crazy sob who is not full of himself and not afraid. There'd be stories to tell for sure.

If any large animal is down where I can see it I am going to wait at least 10 minutes, maybe 15 before I approach it. I almost lost a nice buck by approaching it to quickly. I shot the buck right in the shoulder with an SKS, waited about 5 minutes, then approached it. The deer jumped up and ran into a thick cut over. I came home to get a dog. I released the dog where I shot the deer. In 10 minutes the dog had bayed the deer. I had to get a brush ax to get to the dog and deer.

I miss that old dog. Once he smelled blood you had to put a pincher collar on the dog and literally drag it off the trail.

A friend in Alaska shot a bull moose and 3 cows treed him. I would have liked to see a video of that.

I haven't had a chance to watch the video yet, but what was he charged with and how the heck does a moose get the legal authority to charge anyone with anything????

Yup shot placement is key, knowing how many rounds are left in your gun, and waiting it out for 5-10 mins is the right thing to do. He is lucky he didn't get trampled.
