Maine Moose Tours Report
Moose Report, 2021
2020 has been an interesting year to say the least and today our Maine guide, Ken went out on the NEOC pontoon boat for the last moose/wildlife tour of the year. Ken and the group of 5 set their sights on Big Mud Brook and along the journey they saw a cormorant, an eagle, 6 geese, several loons and a deer. All of us here at the New England Outdoor Center would like to say Thank You to all our guests for a safe and memorable summer season.
It was a beautiful, sunny afternoon and Ken took full advantage of that fact by loading up his group of 6 and heading out on the lake. As our wildlife tours wind down for the season, it is getting more difficult to see our usual variety of animals, but we are seeing plenty of birds. Today they saw an eagle, loons, ducks and 2 common mergansers.
It was a typical autumn day here in New England and as the saying goes,”if you don’t like the weather just wait a minute.” It was sunny, cloudy and even a bit rainy during our afternoon wildlife tour. Ken ventured across Millinocket Lake with his small group in route to Big Mud Brook. They saw loons and ducks but that was the only wildlife out there today.
On this cool 25 degree morning our Maine guide, Ken took his group of 8 out on the calm, crisp lake for our morning wildlife tour. As they sauntered over to Big Mud Brook they caught sight of several loons and ducks and a cormorant. For our afternoon tour Ken was back out on the pontoon boat and the sun had warmed things up a bit. Once again they were able to see ducks and loons, a juvenile eagle and 2 geese.
With fall in full swing here at Twin Pines, our Maine guide, Ken was busy again today with 2 wildlife tours scheduled. It was a brisk yet calm morning so the group of 5 were delighted to get out on the boat to search for wildlife. They had the pleasure of seeing an eagle, a cormorant, ducks, geese and loons but the highlight of the day was the cow moose that they were able to watch for about 45 minutes. The afternoon tour wasn’t quite as exciting but they did have a beautiful scenic boat ride and saw several ducks and loons.
Ken was finally able to get back out on Millinocket Lake today for both his morning and afternoon tour. The morning tour was a private tour for 1 and they headed out for Big Mud Brook to try and find our elusive Maine moose. They were thrilled to be able to find several loons, 2 eagles, 2 common mergansers, 2 cormorants and lo and behold, 2 moose! There was a cow with her calf right there in Big Mud Brook. On the afternoon trip the group of 8 ventured to Big Mud Brook and along the way saw loons, a cormorant, 2 eagles, some Canada geese, wood ducks and once again a cow moose! What an exciting day it was!
It was another windy morning in the Katahdin region and our Maine guide, Ken decided once again to take his group of 4 by van. It was a full day wildlife tour so they had a lot of ground to cover as they headed up the Telos Rd, into Baxter State Park to Sandy Stream Pond and up to the Chesuncook Boomhouse on Chesuncook Lake. They were able to see some grouse, common mergansers, 2 of our sly neighborhood foxes, and sadly, a dead moose calf.
This morning was a bit blustery so Ken decided it was best to take his group of 4 by van and they headed up the Telos Rd. They stopped at a few of Ken’s secret spots and were delighted to see 3 bald eagles, 2 great blue herons and another guest appearance by our friendly neighborhood fox.
Today marks a special milestone for our Maine guide, Ken. It was his 100th wildlife tour of the year! And apparently the moose decided to give him a standing ovation to honor the occasion. Not only did he see some loons, a bald eagle, a cormorant, but also a Bull and a Cow moose with 5 Canada geese in between. Great job Ken and thanks to all our guides for your hard work and dedication during this challenging summer season.
On this partly sunny yet cool day our Maine guide, Ken took his group of 4 out on Millinocket Lake in the NEOC pontoon boat for an afternoon of wildlife viewing. They did have the pleasure of seeing a juvenile bald eagle, a dozen Canada geese, 5 loons and several ducks.
Today we had 2 wildlife tours and they couldn’t have been more different. In the morning it was foggy and misty as our group of 6 headed out on the lake in search of some wildlife. They did see several varieties of birds including 8 loons, 2 eagles, 4 common mergansers and many other ducks. The afternoon was sunny and calm as Ken gathered his group of 8 and set out for Big Mud Brook. The views were stunning as the foliage and the great Katahdin were reflecting in the calm lake making for some amazing photo opportunities. The dozen loons that they saw only added to the beauty.
It was another glorious day in the Katahdin region and our Maine guide, Ken was back out on Millinocket Lake for an afternoon wildlife tour. As they meandered their way to Big Mud Brook they were happy to see 2 loons, several ducks, an osprey and a kingfisher.
