I have been stalking the animals for this shot!!!

It's been about 3 years since we had over 48 Moose on one Quarter Section (160 acres) - 17 bull moose -  on our Canola field during the winter months.   Satellite imaging showed that this was the highest amount of moose in one area in SK - was starting to be called the moose capital of Saskatchewan - accoring to DNR  (Dept. of Natural Resources - wildlife).

We used to have a Cow and her calf that lived just beside the house, i would get Christina walking to the bus, as the Cow and her calf went the opposite way.   The bus would come and do tours.  At night we were on the watch for poachers as it was an open target.   The moose came to the "Shewchuck corner" because that year we voluntary canola came up on the quarter, and apparently they loved the 'cabbage type' leaves.

Since then we have been having a Cow and her twins - yes twins, every year.  We see them all the time and I never get a picture.   While we were roasting weiners during quad trip July 6th - off in the distance was "my shot", now i only have my Sony Cyber Shot  (DSC-H3) 8.1 mp and was able to get this shot...

Aren't they cute, I always see the calf when it's a year old and "gangly" looking - so happy to see the calves!!
Now my next shot will be a close-up - stay tuned!

Would love to hear from you - share some love!
