This video was shot by Swedish hunters and was posted to YouTube late last month. In Sweden, they commonly use dogs to drive moose out of heavy cover.

Luckily, the bull turned away at the very last second.
Big-game hunter and "Winchester Deadly Passion" host Melissa Bachman has found herself the target of a merciless onslaught of negative comments by non-hunters for doing something perfectly legal.
