Landers: Where To Go To See Moose

A reader emailed me today asking where he could bring a friend from out-of-state to see a moose. Most of us who live in this region take moose for granted.  We see them regularly, if not predictably. Seeing a moose for the first time would be a big deal for this reader and his friend.  But where to send them? I had a moose in my yard near Hangman Creek a few weeks ago, but I haven't seen hide nor hair of the bull since. Mike Miller of Spokane snapped a photo of this bull moose on Wednesday while dayhiking along the Little Spokane River. Just last year, moose were chasing dogs accompanying hikers in the Dishman Hills. I put out a few queries to Fish and Game officers. So far, they haven't come up with an area where you could regularly be likely to drive up and see a moose, although moose are being poached not far from I-90 near Cataldo/Rich Landers, SR Outdoors. More here.

DFO: Is there anyone out there beside me who hasn't seen a moose on the loose around town?

Question: Where would you tell a visitor to go, if s/he wanted to see a moose?
