Red Fox and Moose

Hi folks,

I received word of a red fox den the other day in Mason, NH. On Friday afternoon I went to locate the den and found mom with 2 kitts. Being late in the day, I went back Saturday and spent there about 3 hours. The kitts are almost full grown and I’m sure mom will be taking them out hunting soon.

While there I heard a noise behind me and small bull moose appeared about 75 yards away. Then I heard a noise off to my left and soon a cow was came into view not more than 20 feet away. I stepped out in front of her but with a 700 mm lens there was not much I could capture at the close range. She turn and walked away then something made her turn and come back my way. The last photo below was just as she turned back into the woods.



I bought a GameCamera the other day to spy on a beaver hole on the other side of the pond. I was hoping the beavers were coming out during daylight hours for a photo op. I installed the camera yesterday and went to retrieve the card today. I was a bit surprised when I saw this as the first picture!
