Discover Western Montana’s Moose

The largest antlered animal in the world, male moose can weigh between 800 and 1,200 pounds and have antlers, while females may reach weights of 600 to 800 pounds. Moose generally live in forested areas, spending their time in meadows and marshy areas during the summer months. Moose are also noted for their incredible swimming ability. Their diet is typically made of underwater vegetation, as well as leaves, twigs, tree buds and tree bark. If you encounter a moose, use caution as males (bulls) may be aggressive, and females (cows) are incredibly protective of their young. As moose may be largely unpredictable, it's best to watch from a safe distance. For more, visit Montana Field Guide..
