    I've never seen any moose in NH

    When I lived in Vermont, I followed one with Granville Gulf (there's no where for the moose to go except down the road at the tightest point, and that's where I found him, when I was coming home from work).

    When I was living in Moretown, a mother & baby showed up in our back yard, of course I didn't have a camera then

    Smile moose

    They are amazing animals and forest gnome has the most amazing shots that I have seen. I have been lucky enough to see many moose in the wild and yes to be where you can feel their breath on your neck is a rush like no other.
    I was on the Ammo Ravine trail one time with a friend and half way between the cog parking lot and the Gem pool there was Mr. moose. One problem with the Ammo Trail, there is no room for a hiker and a moose to pass each other. When we finally were able to pass him I was so close I could of reached out and touched him. I actually could feel his breath on my neck.
    Last Seek the Peak when heading back to the car from Crag camp my son and I saw two moose off the sylvan trail. They were the first moose he had seen in the wild so being able to experience that with him was just incredible.
    I actually took video of him walking up towards the two moose. He got very close and I had to tell him to stop. I don't know if his mom would of been happy seeing him rapping with the moose.

    Those are the times when you don't tell the mom. Some things are better left between dad and son.

    We could probably start a thread on just this topic. This is a picture of our grandson when he and i did Grandfather Mountain in NC.

    If that were my son I would definitely have to hide that picture from my wife.

    On that hike the others with us kept on saying, "he is on the edge again!" It was a 6.5 mile hike over 3 peaks - lots of fun.

    but, we need to get back on topic here. I did not see any moose on that hike in NC.

    I've never seen a moose while hiking but the last time I was in NH, I saw plenty of them along the road while I was heading towards North Conway.
