Virginia Perry-Unger reports:

I was camping / Kayaking at Garnet Lake and Lizard Pond on Memorial Day Weekend, 2010.  I saw moose tracks on the way from the Lizard Pond Lean-To to Baldwin Springs.  I didn't see the moose itself.  Then, I hike to Round Pond, right near Garnet Lake... saw a moose. 

I only saw its back through the trees.  It snorted and stomped repeatedly when it heard me.  I'm assuming it was female, but I don't know for sure..  Tracks were about 5" long.

NOTE:  Garnet Lake and Lizard Pond are in the Town of Johnsburg, which is east of Speculator, NY.

I have a house and land in Arietta, Hamilton County, New York.

On Friday, June 26, during the day we heard what I said were moose calling in the woods.

On Saturday afternoon, , I got on my ATV and went for a ride in my woods in the light rain. I got almost to the end of my land and spotted a large dark brown object in the woods.  "What is that", I said to myself.  I stopped my ATV on the trail and watched it for a little bit.  Then it started moving out of the woods into the wetlands in front me about 50 yards away.  It was a big bull moose.  My heart was beating so hard from excitement it was hard for me to breath.  Then I turned my ATV around and went very slowly back to the house.  When I got there, I told my wife to get on her ATV to see a moose on our land.  I told her where the moose was, so she went first on the trail.  We got to the place where I saw the moose and she went down another 50 feet.

The moose was still there to my surprise.  He was watching us.  He turned around and we saw all 4 sides of him.  For about 5 minutes, he ate, looked at us, and moved about.  Then I said to my wife "I think I see another one".  Yes, out of the woods into the wetlands came a big cow moose.  They must have had their fill because they moved around and went slowly into the woods.  I could kick myself for not have my camera with me.  Now I am going out to get one of those small cameras that fit in your pocket and keep it with me at all times.

You bet I will get some pictures of them.

We saw a calf moose yesterday, 7/7/2010, on Garnet Lake rd., he was very young.  This was the first time that I have seen a moose in the Adirondacks.   The cow was not seen but I am sure she was just in the heavy bush.  We kept our distance not to spook it or upset the mother.  We were in our car just past Armstrong Rd.  Wow, what an experience.

Beth Pashley reports:

We belong to a group that  owns property at Woods Lake, near the Stillwater Reservoir.  Memorial Day weekend 2010, while out on the lake in a Jon boat, my husband and I saw a moose  cow swimming across the lake.  We watched as she got out on land and she turned and stared at us for a minute or so when out of the water came a moose calf.  They both clomped off into the woods. Of course, I didn't have my camera with me.  

But today, I just got a phone call from one of the other owners , who saw a Bull Moose on a logging road about a mile from our sighting. He did get pictures and I will forward them on to you when I get them! Very exciting!


Here is picture of Bull Moose taken at Woods Lake  that I emailed you about!

Mike Giffune reports:

It’s about a year late, but last fall I almost hit a moose on Sabatis Circle Road near Little Tupper Lake a little after dusk in September.  This was a very large buck that towered over my car, anywhere from ten to eleven feet tall with the rack.  It was amazing!
