Wildlife Filmographer. Not.

This cow moose was waiting patiently north of the driveway for me to walk with her. (A girl can dream.)
Now I know: when the dog is barking, it's not at moose or deer. It's likely at coyotes.
Both dogs went running to see what this was, but neither of them made a sound. I guess they figured out it wasn't the livestock they're accustomed to.
You will hate me because the camera gets all shook up, but I walked forward to see if I could get a better video. I promise next time I'll stand still:

The two of them made a wide half-mile arc through the field to go around me, and I turned and walked south, my usual route this fall. Someone was in the field on a quad, taking up electric fence, so the moose turned back toward the road and crossed it ahead of me.

They're not as close as they look. I zoomed in with the camera.


  1. I can here to cold in the the wind. You are brave I be heading the opposite way. BTW still now snow here.

  2. I'm happy to see I'm not the only crazy dame out there trying to get moose video! Mine usually end with a moose turning his head towards me and me squealing and dropping the camera. I should find that video and upload it. It's ridiculous.

  3. If it took one step toward me I'd vamoose. It's always the other way around though ... so far.
