For hunters, getting a license for a moose can be a once-in-a-lifetime experience.  In Steamboat viewing a moose can be a fairly common occurrence but is breathtaking each time. Moose generally stay close to water sources. Best sightings are now and in the spring. The most common recreational spaces to see moose are at Whistler Park. Follow the river around and you are likely to see moose through bushes or tall grasses.  The Sanctuary is another great moose hangout. Early morning hours are the best time to spot moose or in the evening.  Moose like areas close to the forest with a water source. They consume anywhere from 11lbs to 24lbs of food daily. They are enormous animals and seeing them is breathtaking.
