Tracks - The moose track is slightly larger and more pointed than that of the elk and similar in shape to a deer's but twice as large. The track may be blunted if the ground is rocky and hard, making it more difficult to distinguish from the elks. A typical print is of two pointed pear shapes with the tips closer than the wider bottom.

Straddle: 23 - 26 cm (9.2 - 10.4 in)
Stride: 60 - 85 cm (24 - 34 in)
Track: 16 cm (6.4 in) / 14 cm (5.6 in)

For some reason I have never had a problem picking up on moose tracks. They are kind of in your face. The look like twice or 3 times the size of deer tracks but are more pointed on the end than the deer...

Moose tracks is also a good ice cream... :wink:
