After watching the mother and daughter moose for a while I moved on down the road. Ole eagle eye JohnBoy then spotted something way off the road to the left. I pulled over to that side of the road and shut the car off. With my camera I could see that it was a bull moose, laying down in the grass.
He was just to the left of the tiny tree I am pointing at (pretty clever under the heat of the moment, eh?).
I watched for a few minutes and it started to drizzle. I closed up all but the drivers side window and continued to watch. I saw some movement to the left and learned there was another moose laying in the grass not far from him.
The rain got steadier and I rolled up my window until action was needed. Well, it didn’t take long. As I was looking at the rain through the windshield here came a huge moose, running from right to left across the road about 10 yards in front of me. Scared me half to death!
He slowly worked his way toward the two who were still hunkered down way off the road. Once they saw him coming they stood up and watched him slowly approach them.
As the third moose (an even younger bull with shorter antlers) got very close the older bull bugled, I presume to express his dominance.
They all kind of walked around in a circle for a while, getting acquainted. Eventually all three headed for the woods for some privacy.

Worthwhile detour! I’m sure that third moose was quite a jolt to the system.
Indeed it was. I’ve seen moose run on TV but never in person. He was really moving…
