I just saw this bear this morning as I was leaving the state park. He's been all over the island for a week now, there are sightings here there and everywhere.
He was just sort of meandering along.
Thanks.

Moose are one of my favorite animals. I do hunt moose far away from the towns and during moose season, but the rest of the year I help the ones going through my backyard as much as I can. During the winter months when the snow is high, I cut willow branches so that the tips sort of fall closer to the ground as they hang from the trees. That's one of the primary sources of moose food. It's a real nice and gentle animal considering that it's wild. When calving (or when they have young calves), and during the rut, they can be grumpy and often charge. When they don't like me nearby, as when one enters their safety zone, they move their ears back. When that happens anything is possible, so I never get close enough to make them react that way. Instead, I always keep at a distance and move slowly to let them relax and get used to my presence.

I have to admit, there's nothing wild about this life. Spoiled critters.
