Magnificent Maine Moose

Magnificent Bull Moose

These magnificent mammals fascinate everyone who visits us,

so I have compiled a list of some “Moose Facts”:

-In the Moosehead Lake area, moose outnumber humans 3 to 1!

-Moose are actually the largest of all the deer species.

-Males grow antlers, which can spread 6 feet (from end to end).  They shed their antlers in early winter and regrow them each year.  The main function of the antlers is to attract females.

-The flap of skin that sways beneath the moose’s throat is called a bell.

-Moose can only see a distance of 25 feet.

-Moose prefer to browse higher grasses & shrubs since lowering their heads to ground level can be difficult due to their height.

-Moose have no front top teeth.

-They eat shrubs & pinecones in the winter, but they also use their large hooves to scrape the snow & clear areas where they can dine on mosses & lichens.

-The hooves also support their heavy weight in the snow & mud much like snowshoes would.

-When the ice melts, moose are seen in lakes, rivers or bogs enjoying plant life above & below the surface.

-Moose are excellent swimmers and are quite at home in water.   They will even submerge completely and stay under water for more than 30 seconds.

-In spring & summer, moose are often seen licking the residual salt off roadways and eating the plants on the edges of the roads.

-Moose can run up to 35 miles an hour over short distances.

-Male moose, called bulls, will bellow to attract females during October, otherwise known as “rutting season”.

-Females, called cows, give birth in the spring to one or two calves-each weighing 30 punds.  After the first calf, they quite often have twins.

-Young moose stay with their mothers until the following mating season, at which time they are called a “yearling”.

-Moose are very solitary animals and even though they may feed in close proximity to each other, they tend to ignore each other.

So…if you are interested in seeing these amazing animals…come up to Moosehead Lake!

Taking a guided tour is the best way to see a moose.  We can arrange a tour with a Registered Maine Guide or give you suggestions.

Guided tours are available May 15- October 6.

We also have many other activities such as hiking, fishing, kayaking, canoeing, sea plane rides, white water rafting, leaf-peeping, scenic byways…

and…of course…relaxing!
