Man, I would love to get into a situation like that. Sorry you were not able to get off a shot. In Newfoundland, my hunting buddy tried for two full days to get close to a moose with his bow but never could. Switched to a .308 but only spotted cows the rest of the hunt. He spotted a good bull on the second day but could only close the distance to about 150 yards. But the year before he connected on a nice 6x7 elk in Montana with the old stick and string. I came home and had tag soup, not very tasty or filling.
Good luck with your upcoming season. Looking at the map, I will be hunting 5-6 hours northwest from where you appear to be. Pass along any good information and maybe our hunting trails will cross someday.
