Moose Cow Running her Calf Away During the Rut
This Moose Calf was gone the very next day. Moose calves will stay with their Mother at least until breeding season in their second year of growth. Once estrus starts during Moose rutting season, a moose cow will often chase away her young bull calf in it's second year, while female moose calves may stay with or near their mothers for several years. Moose mothers typically do not chase female calves away; rather they will eventually wander away, but almost always stay near their home territory. Sorry for some blur and darkness(it was late).. these were not ideal conditions and we wanted to give lots of room.
Big Bull Moose pursuing Cow with Calf and an Extra Arrival during the Moose Rut
The third Big Bull Moose pursuing a cow with a calf during the Moose Rut. You can hear lots of vocalizations between the Cow and Bull in this video. Most cow moose during the rut have an estrous cycle that lasts 24-25 days, however, cows may only be receptive to bulls for a brief 15-27 hour period. Here, the Big Bull smells the urine of this cow and follows with his Flehmen Response.. which is how a Bull Moose investigates the cow's readiness to mate. This Big Bull continued to pursue the Cow, but another arrival caused them all to take a step back. The arrival of another young large Bull caused a bit of a gentle dance and lots more vocalizations, but no real conflicts as He moved off shortly after seeing the larger Bull. All of these gentle Giants looked very healthy and happy, which is wonderful to witness.

All three looking very Healthy, this happy big Calf is possibly his as well. They spent a few days together before being seen mating and later in that evening, this big Bull decided to move on to another territory in search of another Cow.. disappearing in the forest after using this bridge to cross the river. You can hear some of the vocalizations between this Bull and Cow in the video.

Big Bull Moose Unites with Cow and Calf - Beginning of the Moose Rut

Three Healthy Bulls Entering the Moose Rut
Three of the Healthiest Bull Moose we have seen in this small area, at one time. This year, the Canadian Rockies rainfall seemed to be above normal and temperatures were a little warmer, enabling moose vegetation to be available longer. Even higher altitudes showed thick green grass and trees up until just a few days ago(of these captures). For Moose here, this was very good, as they are certainly looking more Healthy and Heavier than normally seen in this area of Canada's Rockies. These three amazing specimens are currently occupying overlapping territories that will likely cause paths to cross during the Rut again very shortly.
Magnificent Bull Moose enters the Rut in Canada's Rockies
This is the most Magnificent Bull Moose we've seen in Canada's Rockies this year as he enters the rut or Moose mating season. We've seen several Bulls we will share shortly, but this Bull is certainly seeming to be the most dominant at this very early stage of the rut in our area of the Canadian Rockies.
