Fall and Winter- 2012
There have been several moose hanging out around Swamper Lake in the mid Gunflint Trail area, about half way to town. Then up around Loon Lake, just 4 miles from us by road, there is a cow and yearling calf. They have taken up residence since there is all kinds of winter feed in the blowdown area and in the Ham Lake fire area. Up past us by 10 miles, around Seagull, there are two more moose including one huge bull.
These are the primary moose in the local area around the lodge that have been showing up for camera shots and good viewing.
In addition to the moose, we also have several packs of Timber Wolves that have moved into the area. Each pack has 4 to 7 wolves and we can often hear them howling up on the ridge south of the lodge.
