Does anyone here know who this is? or if there is any pictures to be seen from that camera he was holding? I'm just curios as to if the situation was worth the danger, it could have gone so much worse.
Thanks for posting, that's an interesting video. I'm not sure what I would have done, I probably would have stood up to confront it or run once it was within 10 feet or so. I don't care for super close up photos anyway, the perspective from anything the guy may have gotten from his hip shooting would be distorted like a WA portrait with a person. It strikes me as a young buck learning how to compete with other bucks for a harem, and that it wanted the human to respond like another buck for practice fighting, but what do I know.
