A Young Bull Moose Stands in Chest Deep Snow
What is the measurable distance between moose steps? I had an extremely large animal come through my yard, in NW VT. We have quite a bit of snow, and unfortunately it continued to flurry after the tracks were made, so there is no definitive print. We have never seen moose in this area.
Michael, there are most certainly moose in NW Vermont. Maybe they haven't been right in your area but they have been seen near there. I did a quick search and found a few postings of sightings, it could very well have been a moose in your yard.
As far as distance between step go? These distances can vary greatly from a few feet to several yards depending on if they are just walking, trotting or jumping.
