Mid October is the time that the moose get a bit rambunctious during their rut, or mating season. The big bull are making their presence known to the cows in the hope that their courting will be well received. They make huge bellowing sounds that can be heard from quite a distance, as they mark out their territory. The leaves have dropped so the views can be awesome. We have a variety of spots in the woods for you to visit by hiking or by car that the moose frequent.
On one of the days of your package we include 1/2 day guided moose search. Our guide will take you out to one of his favorite viewing spots and do his best to call in a moose for you.
