Immature Moose
by: Mark - The Mooseman

Typically immature moose don't go far. It's not like they get chased to the next county, they just don't want to show their faces in fear they get beat up.

Mature bulls do chase them off, but they don't go far. Young bull moose are driven by the same sexual desires as the mature moose so they keep an eye on the cows too. They hope to find a cow that needs to be bred that the herd bull isn't watching... strictly opportunistic!
