That's a truck load of moose, to be sure. We have some moose in our area, but they're not doing too well of late due to a parasite problem.

People down here would poop if they saw anything that big in the woods.

One of our biologists told me that moose don't do well in areas with a lot of deer because deer carry parasites that don't bother them much, but are really tough on moose. We do see a moose, now and then, but we definitely have deer … and wolves and bobcats and cougars and fishers and otters and, definitely, bears. Love our north woods.

We don't have many moose around here although there have been reports of them. Great picture.

Wow! What a great pic.

They say the Moose population here in NH is on the decline. Last 2 winters not cold enough and lack of snow. Looks like results should be better this year with all the snow and cold so far. Fish and game are concerned about ticks on moose. Should be interesting results of the study.

Our deer season yielded the 4th largest kill on record. Perhaps there is something to the too many deer = less moose.....

Color me impressed! Being a Southern boy, I've never seen a moose, other than on TV. But I can easily believe that moose/car collisions are often fatal for whomever is driving the car.

Those are some big old boys! No moose in Kansas and the deer population is declining due to Chronic Wasting Disease. I live close to a Corps of Engineers lake and state park. I used to see groups of 20 or more, but this year I'm lucky to see more than 2 or 3 in a group. I hope the deer herd revives and the turkey flocks develop something similar to CWD. We are over-run by turkeys and they have decimated the quail and pheasant populations in this area.

In our area the deer are abundant.
Hunting restrictions have caused the populations to increase to uncontroled proportions.
Coyotes are increasing to the point that although they travel to find food they are taking a toll on domestic dogs, cats and cattle.
Seems like hunters are getting older and the younger group are struggling to make a living.
The more we turn to industry, the more it seems that hunting is set aside.
The deer have found that gardens are their favorite places to gorge themselves during the summer.

We have to deal with deer eating everything we try to plant in the yard. Can't be done without fencing everything we plant. I should be grateful it's not a moose problem.

Hey I did my part and got two deer in NH this year. I like watching moose as well. We head up to Lake Francis in Pittsburg, NH.

Old Jack:

We used to camp at Lilly Bay State Park on Moosehead and had a lot of fun in the area. The moose would come out and feed on the vegetation under the water in the little coves. We canoed out and watched them from as close as I dared to get which was about 30 yards. In the evening we would head north to the dump and watch the bears.

Around here, the bears eat them, along with dogs, cats and so on. One thing about bears, they ain't picky.
