    John, thanks very much. Awesome image from Moose Pond, BTW!

    I'll see a moose in the same range, same size, same shape,gender, etc.

    Kezossa's mom has a crutaneous fibroma on the right side of her neck. Big Daddy has a v-shaped battle notch taken out of the back side of his right ear and his antlers are very distinctive. They grow back the same way each season.

    Here's Richard, on Saturday just after sunrise. He's a yearling bull and his antlers are distinctive, to say the least. His antlers, of corse, will be larger over the next few seasons, but from last week until now they are easy to ID. He's only a mile from where I saw him last time.

    Great shots. I love the last one it reminds me of an old cowboy standing there chewing on a piece of grass. Outstandting shots.

    Parick,if I ever get a picture of a moose 1/2 as good as yours I'll be lucky. Your pictures are breathtaking.Oh,and I think I'm in "moose love" with Richard.

    Default Richard lives!!!

    Yaaaaaay!!!! He made it!

    He was at higher ground today, hanging out with Champney. It was great to see both of them today. Champney is also a young bull, maybe fourish? They were hanging together around 2,000', safe from hunters, browsing away, fattening up for the winter.
