Then just a few minutes later a young buck showed up.  He was watching me film him from 30 feet away.

additional thought to replies #17, 18, & 19
We have salvaged struck animals but timing is crucial. As long as they are bled immediately before bruising takes hold it can work and meat will be good. A friend of mine salvaged a beef cow by ensuring it was bled within a minute of it being hit and it was hanging ready for cutting very soon after. I've known folks who weren't so fussy letting things be for some time but I don't think I'd want to smell that meat. Not important info just info I had between my ears and I have so little of it I thought I'd better share what I do have!  :)

I've seen a couple of Bull Moose this week on the atv trail.  I was leading a group on the trail and looked in the mirror to see where my group was.  A moose had come into the trail after I passed.   The people behind me didn't see him because they were hanging back on the dusty trail. The next day I was headed to town by myself when a Moose ran into the trail 30 feet in front of me in the same general area.  I wasn't going fast but closed in on his flank quickly and too close for comfort.  Thankfully he went in the opposite direction.  He ran away about a hundred feet and stopped to watch me.  I posted a video on youtube but it is so bad I won't link it.  Wish I would have had a dash cam for the close encounter.  The videos look good on my phone but do not upload in a quality manner from the great northwoods.

A big boy at the end of a woods road twitch behind our property yesterday.  Once again the upload is somewhat hazy.   Life at the end of the road.

I went thru the Game Cam pics of a Camera positioned about a 100 feet from Route 1.
