Don Mann isn’t the type of guy that gets nervous very easily. The former Marine and accomplished hunter has bagged some of the more notable animals in North America – mountain goats, desert sheep, caribou, Dall’s sheep, Rocky Mountain bighorn, Canadian moose and more.
But, with the 2011 moose rifle season approaching and Mann spending countless hours in the field looking for moose, he was getting itchy. He’d seen plenty of moose sign – droppings, tracks and thrashed willows – but he hadn’t seen the animal.
