I have been trying to find out how exactly he did it- if it was a tame moose like the ones use in …movies, if it was a "pet" of his, but no one seems to have a definitive answer. The only solid piece of information is that yes, he did ride a moose (and perhaps we will never know why which if you ask me, makes it somehow even cooler)
