Moose





A Cow Moose usually breed at 28 months, even though some may breed as young as 16 months. Calves are born any time from mid-May to early June after a gestation period of about 230 days. Cows give birth to twins 15 to 75 percent of the time and triplets may occur once in every thousand births. A cow moose defends her newborn calf vigorously. The maternal bond is generally maintained until calves are 12 months old at which time the mother aggressively chases her offspring from the immediate area just before she gives birth.




Conservation Moose and Black Bear Program taking place in Cavendish Vermont, Moose breed in the fall with the peak of the "rut" activities coming in late September and early October. Adult males joust during the rut by bringing their antlers together and pushing. Serious battles are rare. The winner usually mates with the female. By late October, adult males have exhausted their summer accumulation of fat and their desire for female company. Once again they begin feeding. Antlers are shed as early as November, but mostly in December and January. A Moose diet during the Summer Months, they prefer to feed in or near clearings, burns or shoreline areas where they browse on tender leaves, twigs and bark of deciduous trees, and semi-aquatic and aquatic vegetation.

They also graze on grasses, lichens, mosses, mushrooms, and herbaceous plants. Winter diet is restricted to conifer and hardwood twigs.
A Moose habitat is usually associated with the Northern Forests in North America, Europe and Russia.In Vermont, Moose are found in greatest numbers in the NortheastKingdom and GreenMountain regions. Moose prefer wetland areas in the summer. Preferred habitat outside of summer are stands of balsam fir, white birch and aspen, interspersed with semi-open areas and swamps or lakes that offer cover and aquatic plants for food. The home range for a moose is a radius of two to 10 miles, if adequate year-round food is available.




Conservation Moose and Black Bear Program taking place in Cavendish Vermont, the Black Bear, is the smallest of the three Bears which are found here in North America. Its the only Bear found in the State of Vermont. The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department’s management objective for Black Bears is to maintain a population that is between 4,500 and 6,000 Animals. The highest numbers of Bears can be found in the center spine of the Green Mountains, from Massachusetts to Canada, and in the Northeastern part of Vermont.

Bear Cub




The best habitat for the Black Bears in Vermont is a mixture of coniferous trees, hardwoods, wetlands, and variation in terrain. Because they need dense cover to escape danger, the wary and elusive Black Bears prefer rough and wooded habitats. Coniferous trees provide concealment and protection from severe weather. Stands of beech and oak, along with wetlands, are important feeding areas for bears. Live weights for adult female Black Bears in Vermont average between 120 and 180 pounds. In contrast, male black bears are generally larger, weighing 300 to 400 pounds. Black bears have an excellent sense of smell and hearing. However, their eyesight is not as well developed.

Adult Bear





 

Conservation Moose and Black Bear Program taking place in Cavendish Vermont, the following are some guidelines to help decrease your chance of having conflicts with Black Bears at your home. Be sure to dispose of your garbage frequently. Store it in secure containers, which you able to be top latched, tied or chained. Don't put your garbage out the night before to be picked up, that's if you happen to have garbage pickup where you live. Its best to feed your family pet members indoors. Folks should keep their barbecue grill clean and to keep it stored inside.

Bear Family



Don't feed Birds from the first of April to the first of December, if you live in an area where there are Black Bears. If you happen to see or suspect there is a Black Bear or Bears near your home, remove your Bird feeders for at least four weeks or until the Bear or Bears are no longer in the area. Folks which have livestock, should dispose of carcasses immediately by burying or incinerating. Support protecting and enhancing Natural Food sources in areas away from where folks live. For more information about just how you can help enhance habitat for our Black Bears, visit the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department's Website. Please report any Black Bear incidents which you might have had.

Dale, we love moose and bear so much that most of the decor in our living room is moose, bear, ducks and loons. 

This would be a mighty fine program to attend.  Thanks!

Dale,

   How cool the moose is definitely an interesting character; I would not want to run into a black bear and would definitely follow the recommendations put on by those folks that know best.

Dale your pictures are just beautiful - the framing you have done is also very eye catching.  Lots of good information here.  It is a big problem in our area with bears taking down bird feeders almost all year long - even after it has gotten quite cold.
