Velvet Moose

February 27, 2022  •  6 Comments

One of the biggest bull moose in Jackson Hole, Wyoming feeds in a pond.

The sun hit him just before sunset and lit up the velvet covered antlers.

 


Fine art print is available: click here

 


Here he is a few weeks later when the velvet is starting to come off

 


Note one of the brow tines on the left side growing down. 
This makes this bull moose easily recognizable: locals call him "Hoback".

You live in the most beautiful area in the world! My husband (and our family) was stationed at Warren Air Force Base in Cheyenne in the 1960s. We love Wyoming and have been in love with Jackson Hole, The Grand Tetons, and Yellowstone ever since. We have visited there every few years and it's our favorite place on earth to visit!

Thank you for these magnificent photos!

Sincerely,
Peggy Schulz
