Black bear too for that matter.
I haven't seen an ADK moose yet, but a good number of tracks. As for bear, I've seen a number of them while hiking including this one yesterday at a southern ADK lake - the first shot is long distance view of lake and the 2nd is zoomed in on a bear that crossed the marshy area.

I saw what I am certain was a moose the other day. It was too far away to make a positive identification. Only 3 things that big and dark...a horse, cow or moose and it definitely wasn't the first two.

The most signs of Moose I have seen is west of the Hudson River. Never saw one in person but I do have a few pictures on trail cam. All trail Cam pictures I have of Moose are just before sun up or during the night. They seem to be somewhat nocturnal. I guess.

Not so much nocturnal as crepuscular. You can see them during the day, but they seem to have peak activity near dusk and dawn. If there's a pond where they often go, the best time to see them is likely to be the hour before dark.
Or probably the hour after dawn, but I'm a night-owl myself - often linger in the sleeping bag far too long.

My daughter was in Anchorage for an internship last year. I told her to take a walk on that trail and get a picture of a moose for me, sort of jokingly.

Less than an hour later she had spotted two moose, and many others throughout her trip.

As ADK12986 states the area around Sabattis station is a great place to see moose. I've seen 5 the past few years and regularly get them on my trail cam as well as several of my friends have seen them (also on their trail cams).
I believe there to be at least 10 (these are the ones seen) in this area.

My son and I saw three moose while hunting whitetail this year. A cow and 2 younger ones. While putting on a drive over the mountain I came across several large piles of scat and 4 huge beds in the fresh snow. Later that day we saw them as we walked through the woods back towards the truck. Pretty amazing to see something so large when you are expecting to see deer!
This was in West Corinth/ Day area along the south shore area of the Sacandaga, known by most as 'Mulleyville'. The cow was spotted last year with 1 youngster, this year she had 2 with her. No sighting of the Bull.

Vermont wildlife official just issued a warning to watch out for moose as they are leaving their winter yards and traveling for new growth areas.

Great catch...

They are all over the place now near roads.They like the salt in roadside ditches and go for new growth which will happen first in shallow water like roadside ponds and puddles.

6 were just seen in Indian Lake over the past 2 days. The pictures were taken from a unnamed paved road.

It was a close call!

A friend of mine just missed a moose with her car on Thursday, between Sugarbush and Vermontville. She said if she had a passenger they could have touched the thing as it stepped out to the side of the road. WHEW!

Do you have any of those pictures you could share? I'd love to see an elusive ADK moose. As a side thought, I would think with a name like Moose River Plains there's a moose haven there...is this anywhere near being remotely true?

Try looking up Indian Lake Chamber of Commerce FB page. I believe that's where I saw the postings.
