Lightbulb MOOSE! in Poland NY

SO I cam einto work on wednesday and was greeted by picture from my boss. They were taken by her mother in poland of a Male moose in the field across from their farm.

Good to see them straying this far south. Hopefully meaning a growing population.

However it could be bad as well ex. Sickness, Human pressure, lack of food, lack of females pushing them farther south.

She told me that her father has a hunting camp near pesico / noblesboro and the game warden there has seen tracks and been confronted by a large male many years ago.

Could also mean there are many males. Not necessarily lack of females. Males compete for females and the loser is chased off.

There are moose farther south in Connecticut. Lets hope this one does not meet with unhappiness with a car.

So it could be encouraging news.. or maybe not if brainworm is involved.

BTW the picture does not show up.. I don't think you can do a direct attachment if thats what you tried.

About this time of year, but close to 20 years ago, there was a big bull that set up shop in a pasture near in northeast Cayuga County. He hung around with the dairy cows for about two weeks before the DEC moved him back to the Adirondacks. They cut off both of his antlers before the transport. They gave one antler to the dairy farmer and the other to the neighboring landowner where they moved him from.

Moral of the story - if you're really horny and hangout in the neighborhood too long, we're gonna shoot ya, cut ya up, then take ya for long drive to the woods. Bada Bing Bada Boom

It was in the late 1970s that bull moose began appearing in the dairy pastures of Lewis County, just west of the Blue Line. They would simply walk through barbed wire fences. The thought was they were heading west from Vermont, upwind, in search of a mate. Dairy cows provided a similar scent, but not quite the same. I remember one or more bull moose standing on the edge of a pasture, overlooking the dairy cows, with a look on his face as if to say... "well it's close, but there's something not quite right about this"...

They seem to pop up in the strangest places, years ago one was killed on the Thruway south of Kingston, also spotted as far south as Fishkill, NY near route 84.
I have been lucky enough to see moose near Speculator and in Moose River Plains.

We were on our way to the Vanderwhacker Primitive Area on Friday (9/26) and came across a Big Moose in the road! Luckily in the other lane! What a sight to behold! Twas our first moose encounter!
