The moose are still around, according to my trail cameras, but they seem to be staying away from people as much as they can. This photo was taken by a trail cam on a very rarely visited and densely forested slope.
It was definitely one of our more mature bull moose.
He noticed my trail camera and gave it a close look before moving along. Look how far his dewlap hangs down. It's almost hitting the ground!
I never take dogs to the trails where the wildlife density is high so Shyla has never been there. I think that I'll keep it that way although I think she'd like the trail!
