WMD 10 is 4 miles away. The WMD 6 starts at Knowles Corner, which is about 12 miles from our camp. We are 2/10ths of a mile away from WMD 11.

DID YOU KNOW: The average adult bull weighs 800 lbs. (dressed), but can exceed 1,000 lbs. and the average adult cow weighs 600 lbs. (dressed) during Maine’s fall hunting season. The length of a moose is approximately 9′ and shoulder height is about 6′. A prime bull has a front hoof width of about 5″, slightly under 4″ for a cow, and just under 3″ for a calf. A cow has a brown face and a bull has a black one. They both have “bells,” skin flaps found on the neck. A bulls antler spread can range from 55″ (good) to 65″ (excellent). Bulls obtain maximum antler development at age 5. Moose eat the leaves and twigs of woody plants. Pond weed and water lily are an important part of their diet. They also can be seen along roads using the salt runoff as an artificial salt lick. On the average bull moose live to be 7 and cows 8.
