  1. He looks a bit gangly without those antlers. Glad you saw him. We keep looking for resident moose in Bunchberry and while we see tracks and evidence of moose around, they are elusive. Happy Tuesday Lynette. Allan

    1. Yes, he does! This one was near the road, which is rather unusual. Moose are usually quite shy, but this one seemed unconcerned. It’s amazing the energy that goes into growing these antlers every year – they have to eat a lot!

  2. I don’t know about Moose (is that plural for Moose?) antlers, but my dad has a lot of deer on his land where they shed theirs. His grandsons (my nephews), find them there on occasion. They are great for the dogs to chew on and super expensive to buy in the store.

    1. “Moose” is both singular and plural. Shed moose antlers are very hard to find as they are consumed by other animals. They thrive on them because they are such an excellent source of protein. Nature’s re-cycling! Cheers.

    1. Thank you very much. This guy seemed to have some age on him, too. His face is scarred and he was moving rather slowly, but his age means that he will likely grow a huge set of antlers!
