Moose Physical Characteristics
Moose are the largest member of the deer family. Calves weigh about 30-35 pounds at birth and about 400 pounds at five months of age. In Maine, a typical adult male weighs 1,000-1,100 pounds but very large specimens may weigh as much as 1,400 pounds (live weight). A typical adult female weighs 800-900 pounds. Moose are about 6 feet tall at the shoulder. Bulls grow a new set of antlers each spring and drop them in early winter. Antler size varies from spikes or forks on most yearlings to large palmate structures up to 6 feet wide on exceptionally large mature bulls. An antler spread of 4-5 feet is typical for adults. The current population estimate of moose in Maine is 29,000 and growing. Some claim it is over 70,000!
