Bear in mind that during the September-October mating season, bull moose will behave more aggressively. And no matter how cute the baby moose looks through your camera, if a mother feels you’re threatening her little one, she’ll move to protect it.

A wonderful book to bring to Moosehead Lake is “Maine Moose Watcher’s Guide” by Bill Silliker Jr. (R. L. Lemke, 1993). Back home, check out Silliker’s “Moose: Giants of the Northern Forest” (Firefly, 2005; $19.95); “Uses for Mooses” (Down East Books, 2000; $12.95); and “Moose-cellania” (Down East Books, 2004).
