Moose Monday - Where Is The Moose?

By
Education & Training

I will admit that I have not had a real moose sighting in Red Lodge, Montana since my moose chase back in October 2009.

I did go back to my photos from that day and pulled the following photo to share with you for Moose Monday.

Moose be nice to be a Bull Moose on Moose Monday!  :)

Robert,

They are wild animal and no one should try and get too close to any one of them especially a mother moose with a baby moose.   I did not know about the stastistics you mentioned.  The photo above was taken from the safety of my car.  Thanks for dropping by to comment.

Gerry - That moose looks like it is on a mission!  I hope it wasn't chasing anyone you know:-)

Beautiful photograph but I would not want to be anywhere near that thing. It looks very healthy and proud--nice shot.

Myrl,

It was not chasing anyone.   I was the only one doing the chasing on that day.   :)

Tony,

He changed directions many times but no matter which way he headed towards, he seemed to be in a hurry.

John,

Thank you.  He must be very proud judging by the sizer of his antlers and the way he carried himself with his head high above his shoulder.

Hi Gerry, I just noticed that you are 1 post shy of 150,000 points.  Let me be the first to congratulate you for all your hard work and moose hunting.  I will be waiting for the big party post lol.

Hi Gerry...........I'm also a big moose fan.  We were fortunate to see a great many on our RV trip to Alaska many years ago.  One of my husband's sons lived in Yaak for several years and we always saw Moose on our visits there.  I could walk almost right up to them, they never ran (I made sure not to bark ;-)  I'll have to look through some of my old shots.......not DSLR though.  Thanks for sharing.

Jenny,

Thank you.  I believe you reached 200,000 points before I got to 150,000 points.   Congrats as well!

Gail,

There are several posts of moose sightings all over the country and a good number of them are from Alaska thanks to the regular contributions to the Moose Monday group by Debra Leisek.  I do hope that you come back and share some of the old shots you took of the moose in Yaak.  All my contributions to Moose Monday are with a point and shoot.

Thanks for the positive feedback!   :)
