A lot of people do not actually realize how large a full grown bull moose is in real life when up close and personal.. Even a cow moose is not small........................ saw many while in the interior of Alaska...... drill sgt.

Trust me the are not as dumb as some people think and can be very aggressive if riled up.. Plus you do not want to get between a momma moose and her calf. When out in the woods I wore a string hanging from belt loop that had several small bells that made noise so as the wildlife (moose/buffalo/ bears/ sheep/ wolves/ fox/lynx/etc would know that humans were out and about and steer clear of the bell tinkling. ........................ drill sgt.

My back property line is a fresh water stream. It meanders a couple of miles through the woods to a small pond. It has (or did have last time I went up it) several beaver dams in various states of repair so much of the land on either side of it is marshy and wet.

In our younger, more fit days, Mrs. PHPaul and I used to canoe (and later kayak) up it off an on in the Summer. Once, in the canoe, we came around a bend and spied a cow moose in the reeds off to our right. I was in front and was paddling hard trying to get a little closer (say 50 yards or so) for a better look and wasn't making any progress.

I looked back and Mrs. PHPaul was paddling backwards for all she was worth, wanting to get the hell out of there! I acceded her wishes, which in retrospect was probably wise.




Be careful when following the masses. Sometimes the M is silent.

I have learned as well that Mrs. Goose is usually right. I don't always listen, but she's usually right.
