Moose have been one of the most popular subjects on this blog throughout the years. THE most popular post of all time on this site is “Have you ever wondered what sound a moose makes?” That post not only has some moose sounds but it tells you how to make a primitive moose call out of a coffee can. I, myself, have been fascinated with the majestic moose since I viewed my first one. Living in Maine gave me a great opportunity to photograph the animal. Today, I thought that I would share some of the photos that I took over the years.I found this big boy on the Stud Mill road late one day as we were going to Old Town. I got out of the truck to take photos and as I watched, he kept peering into the woods behind him. A short time later, I found out why as a pretty little cow walked out of the woods.You never know where you might find a moose. We were cruising around Nicatous Lake on our fishing boat one evening when we found this bull moose almost in the middle of the lake taking a swim (top left). He swam to a far shore as we watched. By the time he reached the shore he was gasping for breath. He caught his breath and walked off into the grass (top right). The moose in the woods in the above grouping was on the side of our driveway as we ATVed out for an early evening ride.This little guy was in a bog off the 32-00-0 road. Do you notice that the roads in the area are named by numbers? That’s because they are woods roads. Our camp is located in T41 MD, which stands for Township 41, Middle District. This is an unorganized township. Below are a few more moose that we encountered on the 32-00-0 road as we were driving or ATVing. The last one down in this grouping, was on the Stud Mill Road as we headed for Old Town. It was taken in the spring of the year when moose are still pretty scruffy looking before they get that nice, new shiny coat. The collage of photo’s below were taken when we worked as contract rangers at Kidney Pond Camps in Baxter State Park in the early 90’s. Kidney Pond Camps was a traditional sporting camp run by Ruth and Charlie Norris for many years but was made a part of the park around 1987. There was a salt lick in the area where you see the moose “kneeling”. Even after there was no salt allowed to be placed there, the ground was saturated with it from years past and the moose would come to dig up the dirt for the salt content. There were many chances for moose photo ops at KPC.It seems strange to me, who some days can’t remember what I had for breakfast ;-), but I can remember all of the places that these photo’s were taken. Pretty amazing. Well, I hope that you enjoyed the photos. There is still one last photo that I would like to share with you. I’ll leave you with a moose encounter of a different kind. The photo below was taken a few years back during a Susan Komen Race For The Cure in Bangor, Maine.
