I, too am still waiting for my first moose (and bear!) sighting, in all my years I have yet to see one live and in person. More than once I have returned home from a week or two in the Adirondacks only to learn later that a moose was spotted right where we camped a few days prior... or a bear trotted across my family's property one evening. Just my luck....

Luck certainly helps for the unexpected daytime sighting but if you want to dramatically increase your odds then as its getting dark and just before the sun comes up (like 4am in summer) will help. I have seen bear and Moose and gotten some soso pictures but its the moment itself of seeing them alive and unharmed in the wild that is truly priceless..

Justin & Buckladd, those are amazing photo's and great experiences. Have seen many moose in Maine but never in the ADK's however we find tracks continually on our lease between Tupper and Long Lakes.

For some reason I get many more pictures of Bear and Moose than Deer at my Camp. So far this year I have gotten pictures of 2 Moose and 5 Bear.

Last year I got photos of 4 Moose. I also was lucky enough to be sitting on porch when they walked by. Within 3 days I had a Mother and 2 calves walk past and 2 days later a young bull walked no more than 10 feet past my door.

Halfway between Newcomb and Long Lake. I'm 1.5 miles back in. There are two swamps about a half mile away so that explains the Moose but not the bears or lack of Deer.

If there were a simpler way to show photos I do it. My favorite Moose photo was taken this year while I was away at the Newcomb fireworks. The photo background is unique since it was right at dusk.

My favorite bear photo was also taken this year in April. I nicknamed him the Zombie bear since he looks like he should be dead and someone forgot to tell him. I think he has mange. Even in zoom it took me a half a minute to determine it was a bear. Very strange looking.

Wow, amazing shots! I don't even know, what a feeling would I have, if I saw it with my own eyes..maybe, something between stun and fear..animals are unpredictable, especially moose.
