The moose is the largest living species in the deer family. Moose are distinguished by the wide flat antlers of the males. Moose typically inhabit boreal and mixed deciduous forests of the Northern Hemisphere in temperate to subarctic climates.

A friend and I made a spur of the moment decision to wake up at 4:00AM and drive an hour into the mountains before sunrise in hopes of photographing some bull moose that had been seen in this area for the last few weeks. We got to the lake just after sunrise and we were greeted by two bull moose still with velvet antlers! A morning to remember!
