Description: While hiking in the Chugach Mountains, we witnessed two dominate bull moose in a violent sparing match from 1/2 mile away. Even from that distance, we could hear the impact of their antlers, their huffing, seeing the surrounding grass and soil being ripped up and fur flying. After watching for several minutes, one bull turned away and walked further down the valley. We happened across this bull later, only to discover his battle wounds from the fight - a broken tine. It served as a testament of the strength and force that occurs during a fight between two very dominate bulls.
