I can assure you, pretty much across the board, this content can be used anywhere.
Sure... there will be some slight variations in the timing of the rut (mating season) and the habitat locations they use from season to season -- I guarantee you, no matter where you are looking, this information will help you!
However; as I mentioned above, my experience in finding them is here, in British Columbia, Canada.
A frequent contributor had a unique encounter with a couple of enormous bull moose. This big guy gets up close and personal, finally the photographer getting a little nervous makes a move and the bull trots off a short distance.
