Return Of The Adirondack Moose

For an animal that's not only quite large, but also an iconic symbol of the North, moose in the Adirondack Mountains can be very difficult to find.

Part of that has to do with the vast range of the area, over 6 million acres, but most of the blame for their scarcity falls on man.

Moose were once abundant in the region, but the forests critical to their survival were decimated in the 1800s, and unregulated hunting completed the devastation.
