Video: Moose Montage

Photographer Ed Burke captured these trail cam videos of moose in Saratoga County at the southern edge of the Adirondack Park. Also included, a brief appearance of a hunting dog.

Burke said he included a couple of different moose in this montage to show the kinds of antlers. “I didn’t want my video to give rise to the myth that ADK moose have weird, defective antlers (which all deer do sometimes,” Burke said in an email.

    I was wondering where these videos were taken? I live in Porter Corners. One of the moose looks very much like the moose we had here. Also, wondering what kind of trail cameras were used.

    These were closer to Sacandaga but easily could be the same moose although many look similar. I’ve caught two bulls with deer type antlers and two bulls with paddle type that looked very similar. I’m having good luck with Meidase S3 Pro trail cams but have also had good Browning and Bushnell. They are all quirky, sometimes firing, sometimes not and sometimes lots of false triggers from wind, etc. I’ve lost two to thieves.
