After he was caught red handed (brown handed?) eating our food for the next two nights, we sent Yogi into a timeout so he could fully understand why what he had done was bad. Here you see him hanging his head in shame.

I have quite a few photos of this particular bull. I chose this one because a. It was the first full body shot I got of him b. The photograph is mostly straight c. I did not have the zoom on at all. I was roughly thirty-five feet from this guy. It was one of the most intense experiences of my life.

I wanted to share this other one for fun. I saw these two about 15 hours prior to seeing the bull. About 10:30 the night after I saw the cow and calf I heard a couple moose calling in the woods behind me. Very cool.

Both these photos were taken on Horsehoe Lake near the head of the South Brule river mid September 2010

I'd never seen a loon on the nest until this year. We tried not to get so close as to bother her and this was the best I could get. She was motionless in her well protected spot on Omega Lake. June 2011.

Hahaha! I hadn't noticed the red on the hindquarters. Good catch doc. The pic was taken in August, so not calfing related. Wolf encounter is a possibility. The front leg is just pushing water (high shutter speed).

we came upon this bull moose on Rib lake within the first hour of our fall 2009 trip. he tolerated our presence for close to 45 minutes. one of the favorite highlights of that trip.
