A profile view of a large bull moose standing in the high brush and grasses of the Yukon Delta NWR. The moose still wears his large rack and the foliage has turned the dull orange and yellows of late fall. Did You Know?
Moose are the largest member of the deer family and can be seen throughout Alaska. Their antlers, which are shed each year, are covered in a thin layer of velvet as they grow, before being rubbed off during the mating season.
