I've always wanted to and never did find a moose antler. Guess I didn't spend enough time off trail!

Great shots...

As being a newcomer to New england, anyone have any good trails for seeing moose. I would prefer easier trails as my wife really wants to see a moose up close as best she can, and she isnt an avid hiker.
Thanks

My favorite 'trail' to see mooses was Rt 3 North of Whitefield!

There must be a thousand moose here. Well, at least three. I used to see them here every Wednesday morning during shift change.

PS: More than one moose is still moose, not mooses or moosen :)

Bill O,

Interesting that you used to see moose there. NHF&G did a wintertime study during the last few years on animals crossing roadways, and focused on that area. I don't have the archived email, but the study got alot of press because a lynx crossed the road near there...

Pays to remain on their email list serve even out of NH...

Thanks again

Think about heading to the Rangley Lakes area of Maine or around Moosehead Lake. There lots of them up there.

How far would rangley lakes be from southern NH. I have heard of them due to the sled dog races. thanks for the advice as well Brad!:)

My trusty Street Atlas software from Delorme says from Nashua, NH to Rangley Lakes is about 4 hour 30 minutes drive.

I see Brad uses the best DeLorme Atlases. Thank you, I am about 25 minutes NE of Nashua so that shaves a little of my drive time.
Thanks again
Looking foward to getting a few photos of some moose one day soon
