By the length of his beard and the grey legs, I figure he must be over 10 years old. He looks to be well over 8 feet at the top of the shoulder hump, and with his head up the height to the top of his antler must be about 12 feet .This guy is king of the forest, no bear or pack of wolves would dare come after him when he has this rack......Considering that a dirt road can fit 1 1/2 cars across ... this fellow is HUGE ...THIS IS ONE BIG BOY!

THE PICTURE WAS TAKEN IN ELLIOT LAKE ( Elliot Lake is near Sault Ste. Marie.)

Yes it is a regular size dirt road.

That is a HUGE animal! I've never seen a moose in person, and just assumed they were a little larger than an elk. You could drive a car under that bad boy!

I tracked one once while deer hunting up in the Huron Mountains years ago. All I wanted was pictures but I ran out of daylight. They frequent the logging roads up there as it is easier for them to move around. I saw some in Yellowstone years ago but they weren't nearly as big. It was hard to tell though as they were standing in a marsh feeding on weeds and we were at least 500 yards out.

OH yea, one more thing. Now you know why they are known to take on freight trains up in Canada. LOL

I'd like to see one. I bet he could make quick work of a flower bed.

Seen a bull one time from a distance and ended up 20 feet from a cow while hunting elk in the bighorn mountains in Wyoming several years ago. The cow was the same shape, build as the dairy cows I'm use to seeing only it was 1.5 times the size, it was huge!

About 10 - 12 years ago, we saw a couple in Nova Scotia. The ones we saw were definitely bigger than a horse, but they were not as big as the photos above indicate. Wow!
