More Moose in North Country NH


My friend, Robin, called me last night and mentioned that she saw two moose - on young bull and one young cow. I went out after work this evening to see if I might spot a moose. The rut is over and bulls have lost about 25% of their weight.


I think this is the same bull my friends saw. He has been hanging out in this area for a couple of days.


This is a healthy looking bull but as you can tell from his antlers, he is still pretty young.


It was getting later (and darker) when I saw this bull. It looks like he saw some sparring action during the rut. One of his antlers was broken.


I asked him..."Is that your final antler"?

I love the reflection in his eye in the third shot. I would love to see on of these in the wild someday. :)
