Meet Millie the Moderately Moist Moose

It was darn near as dark as sundown and the air was full of rain this morning when I came up over a rise on the Tomahawk to find the big black blob in the road. She dove down into this swamp and, of course, paused to look back a few times before fading away for good.

Thanks, Deitz. That's the camera's meter at work, exposing the image more brightly than the ambient light, plus a little more brightening in post processing.

Steve those are really beautiful pics. That bottom shot would look awesome framed.

Thanks, folks. Quetico, the bottom one is not sharp because of the rain. Shame the rain wasn't backlit so it would show. I may work some texturing into it in photoshop to make it look a bit like a watercolor.

Ken, the title was all for you, buddy! gringrin

There's just no slowing you down lately. I sure hope that's not the last remaining moose in the area. It's a shame that they are getting so rare. But, leave it to you to run across one. wink

I really like the second shot, as you can see him watching you, out of the corner of his eye.

You're going to run out of wall space pretty soon, if you keep this up. grin

That first one is sweet, Steve! That would be fun chasing these guys around.

I like that second shot Steve, that look or air about her says "go ahead I dare you to take my picture".

I also like the second one, the side profile of a mooses nose is something I can't get over.

I also like how she is looking at you out of the corner of her eye in the second one.

    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.
    • Slowly getting the outside buttoned up 
    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
    • Does anyone know of a place you can get spare Shimano Sedona spools?? I run braid in the summer and don't want to run it on the ice.
