bull moose scratching himself Alaska bull moose velvet antlers young bull moose Bull Moose Scratching Himself Alaska hi it’s AlaskaGranny Alaska Prepper This young bull moose, antlers still in velvet, was eating in my yard. He wandered around eating and paused to scratch his face with his hind leg and scratch his hip with his antler. The antlers of this young bull moose are still in velvet. The moose will scratch and rub to remove the velvet in fall. The moose continued eating alders and roses and disappeared into the woods. Moose grab branches in their mouth, slide all of the leaves off with one turn of the head. I say they are flossing the branches. You can tell when a moose has been in your yard, the tops of the branches are bare of leaves. Tips to stay safe around moose Give moose plenty of space, at least 50 feet, and never force them into a corner. If you have dogs, keep them on a leash and under control. Be especially wary if the moose seems irritable or if calves are around. Male moose tend to be more aggressive during the fall, their annual rut cycle, and spend virtually all their energy looking for females to impress and mate with.

  1. That bull moose is so pretty and cute and must have a cow or two which he mates with regularly. We don't have any moose here, but do have Elk, and White Tail Deer which is over the state.
