In winter, we estimate that moose are almost daily visitors to our 270+ acre property. Therefore, we are always very excited to participate in this yearly count. It is something of an Easter egg hunt at the club for our long-legged, unofficial mascots! (Only once in my tenure at the club have we been "skunked" on Moose Day!)
Surveying on # 11; moose tracks, and one of the females observed.
The moose observed seemed to be in great shape. Only one injured animal was spotted. And there were no reports of moose with signs of ticks (rubbed fur) or carotid artery worms (nicked ears).
Special thanks to Frances Clark, Moose Day Coordinator, for the organization and data!
