Video: Rare North Dakota Moose Walks Under Deer Hunter’s Stand
This is not something most whitetail hunters expect to see under their tree stand.
Brennen Nading of The Breaking Point was deer hunting in North Dakota when he had a rare encounter with a moose. The animal walked right under his treestand seemingly unaware of the hunter above. This moose was only one of about 300 in the state making this a very special experience.
According the the North Dakota Game and Fish Department “the state’s highest moose densities are found in the northwest, while numbers in what was once considered traditional moose habitat in the Turtle Mountains and Pembina Hills, remain low. Overall, the statewide population is stable to increasing.
Smith said Department moose survey numbers in the Pembina Hills peaked in 1995 at 260-plus animals.”
