Awesome! You are very fortunate just to see that, never mind capturing the moment.

We had a similar encounter a few years ago on the Alagash in Maine. There was a cow browsing the river and we floated within about 10 feet and the moose seemed unperturbed. I believe that Dick and Joanne also floated real close.

Wasn't a bull like that though.

I've seen 3 bulls in the Dacks, Pumpkin Hollow, Along the West Branch of the Sacandagas, and up by Lake Lewey.

Indeed, at one point she started swimming toward us! I told Joanne to stop the photo shoot and that we needed to paddle fast out of there. It wasn't until afterward that we noticed the young ones nearby!

By the way - I'd submit this one to the calendar contest if I were you!

Different spot. You're talking about where the cow was in the middle of the river as well as 2 yearlings and a calf. They were all submerging and then surfacing. We got pat them and you were behind us. That was a pretty close encounter too.

I'm talking about a little further downstream. We drifted down into a wider shallower spot. There was a cow about 12 feet off shore up to her knees in the water browsing the bottom. We just drifted right past her and she just continued with that she was doing.

You and Jo were only about five minutes behind us at that point, I'm sure you saw her.

Your memory is better than mine, and you're probably right! We do have some photos of the encounter, but we'd have to figure out how to scan them again (I think they were shot on those professional style Kodak throw-away jobs).

Outstanding photo(s) adkayaker!
Sure looks like the same bull in the "Finally" thread...
Curious if it was from the same day, or perhaps you returned a few days later and got lucky with another encounter.
