A Moose in my yard!

I knew it was just a matter of time, until I had a moose in my yard, and today was the day! There was a calf and a cow, but by the time I grabbed my camera and got a few shots, the calf was gone. Now, you must understand, in my excitement, when picking up my camera, I hit the manual focus button!!! GGGrrrrr!! Also, in my excitement, I never noticed they were out of focus! LOL! Anyway, the 1st picture was taken through my kitchen window and screen, and the 2nd was from my deck. Now I know why people are killed when they hit these guys on the road.. they are HUGE!

Be careful driving through Sugarbush on Route 3!!!!!!!!

Jackie

Very nice! I'm still waiting to see my first Adirondack moose, much less one in my backyard. I have seen tracks on the hill above my house, and I know there's an established population nearby, but most of my excursions are in areas where they are less likely to be found. I'm sure if I set out specifically to sight one I'd be successful.

Yes, Moose have been seen quite a few times here in Sugarbush. In fact, in the last two years, two have been hit and killed on Route 3. The last one was hit by two cars AND a motorcycle on Sugarbush Hill just a few weeks ago.
