Hey Bullwinkle!

Deerfield Valley News reader Jay Wood spotted this bull moose on Route 100 in Dover, close to the Stratton town line. Moose shed their antlers annually, in the fall, after mating season. After a healing period, new antler buds sprout. If you look closely (click on the photo to enlarge) you can see his antler buds, already about 6 inches long.
