For as big as these guys are, you would think they would be easy to spot. However, with as dense as the foliage is in Colorado’s high country, moose can sometimes seem to appear out of nowhere. Such was the case with this big guy last month.
I was studying the trees and willows soon after dawn trying to find the moose bulls that are usually in the area. This big guy had his head down and with the thick brush, was virtually invisible. Once he picked his head up though, he was pretty hard to miss with those massive antlers.
It definitely serves as a reminder to keep close watch when you are in remote locations as you never know what is right nearby.
