I don't think he handled that well either...I don't have objective proof that this is actually what happened, but it sure looks like either it was intentional because he wanted to feel like a macho man and get some YouTube fame, or he is an utterly incompetent moron. Either way, this video really pisses me off. Who the hell would be out in a wilderness area like that and NOT have a basic understanding of animal behavior (never mind a moose, just any wild animal). If you move toward a territorial animal, it will defend that territory -- DUH! If this guy didn't know that, then he had no business being in that situation in the first place; if he did know that, then the whole thing was intentional. All he had to do was keep whooping and yell a little, and wait a few minutes. Also, he should have had his gun drawn and ready the whole time, not after it was charging like that. Don't get me wrong, I certainly understand that a moose is a very dangerous animal, and if it started charging toward me, I would definitely shoot if I were armed. There was just no legitimate reason to close up the safety gap and threaten the animal like that (this obviously wasn't a moose hunt, either...). To make matters even worse, after seemingly spooking the animal and perhaps getting it to run off, he moves forward more and (apparently) intentionally re-engages, essentially forcing the animal to choose the fight option (or so it seems to me... I am NOT an expert...). I surely hope that this jumpy, wannabe alpha-male, trigger happy dumb ass isn't a cop -- that would be terrifying!
