I've been lucky this week...

another cow moose, close-up...does her graying hair indicate aging?

a young bull showing budding antlers...it's a long way down to the ground for a moose...

I named this bull "Big Daddy". I've seen him four years running, very distinctive antlers which grow the same size and shape each year.

Great shots. I think I have some of big daddy as well. Those antlers are unique.

I didn't see any moose on the Kanc yesterday. Must have been all those loud Harleys.

What approach do you use to get such great shots. I could wander all day in the woods and probably never see a moose. I only see them by accident usually.

Well, I was once charged, but I'd call it a bluff because the bull stopped his charge after a few seconds. I was briefly terrified :eek: .

That helped me learn to get close without upsetting them. They won't like you if you appear to be a predator. Act like a fellow browser.

Happy Trails :)
