I was under the impression that male moose were extremely territorial. Just ask anyone who has gone out looking for some moose– they’re impossible to find and you always come up with some excuse like, “Moose are very territorial.”

It turns out, male moose gather during mating season to go look for the females. The groups go on the hunt for the female moose mating call.
They play nice right up until it’s time to get down to business then they battle to show who’s boss!

It seems a little late in the season for mating, but these bad boys still have full horns– something they don’t shed until the deed is done.
