One of the things I liked about living in Alaska was the MOOSE.
If you didn't bother or scare them, they would leave you alone. RESPECT NATURE!
The kids were seriously bummed when they found out that Northern Virginia does not have MOOSE. Deer are not the same. A moose will stand there and look at you. A deer will run off.
We were on the way home from a gig recon and we saw this scene...
13 deer on ONE hill. There were more but, of course, they ran off.
The photo is not doctored, I didn't PhotoShop deer into it..
