    Thank you Gale - I think they really change from spring time when they have stubby horns and then in the fall when they have full racks.
     
  4. Looks like you were able to get pretty close Mark. Nice shots!

    Yes, but not close enough to smell them or maybe we were upwind.

    Moose must not have any natural enemies; he's coming out of those woods like gangbusters.

    I hope to get a moose shot at least once in my lifetime, and not one of those cardboard cut-out silhouettes the Mainers post in the yards to trick us silly tourists!

    I presume the calves do get knocked off but I am not sure what is big enough in Maine to take them down, besides cars/trucks. I have to find the shot of the car I took. Pia, If you ever get to Maine or Northern New Hampshire, I sure you will see them!
