According to Jenevieve Kramer, a spokeswoman for the sheriff, the injured hunter activated a GPS device’s emergency signal. Around 70 miles west of Fort Collins, in the area south of Cameron Peak, other hunters came across the man as he was making his way out on foot.

According to Kramer, a sheriff’s deputy administered “life-saving” first aid and tied a tourniquet. The man was transported by chopper to a nearby hospital. It wasn’t immediately clear what he was feeling.

There's been four moose attacks this year and 13 since 2019, according to a spokesperson with the Colorado Parks and Wildlife.

Kramer remarked, “He was in pretty horrible shape.”

According to Travis Duncan, a representative for Colorado Parks and Wildlife, it was the 13th moose attack on a human since 2019 and the fourth this year.
