SEASONS

The area along the Gros Ventres River from Gros Ventres junction all the way east to Slide Lake is excellent moose habitat. Moose can be seen all year long in this region. The single best spot is probably the Gros Ventres campground.

Moose can also be seen frequently in the summer at Oxbow Bend to the north. Moose sitings were once very common. Unfortunaely the thriving wolf population has cut the Teton moose herd to half its former size in the last decade.

TIMES

Like most animals moose are most active in the hours just after sunrise and just before sunset. Moose can be dangerous and historically kill many more tourists than grizzly bears. Keep you distance. They are not cows!
