Just a Lot of Bull.....

I guess y'all know what this blog will be about today...

This big, beautiful bull moose was standing in a clearing between a couple of old bunkers.
It was about 5:00 this morning...  outside temps in the low 50's.  His body heat must have been giving off some steam as he was in a cloud of vapor.

Looks at that rack!
This bull is much bigger than the one I posted a photo of a week or so ago.  And look how large his rack is...  the paddles are looking quite magnificent!

I sat in my car watching him, then quietly slipped out and took these photos.  He stood watching me and after 5 minutes or so decided I wasn't very interesting after all.  He turned and headed into the woods.
The End

That's All For Today!

  1. That is one large Bull. Similar to the one we saw many years ago camping in Algonquin Park , Ontario. First thing in the morning he came out of the water on the site next to us a strolled between their 2 tents, back into the bush. And I did not have my camera!

  2. He certainly seems a fine specimen. I like the capture of the steam from his body.

  3. I can imagine the fights to come, with a rack like that. The stories of bucks and moose males getting their antler racks caught up in fences or brush, dying that way, are sad. I saw a video of someone who freed a deer caught that way,but that deer had antlers entangled in those of another deer he had been fighting. That other buck had died, but the man was able to free the living buck of the dead one's body.

  5. We are in the Grand Tetons. Craig kept looking for moose as we drove around and saw moose signs, but I told him he probably would not see any at his preferred time of day. Afternoon. He has to get up in the morning if he wants to see wildlife!
