One of the guys in camp this week hit a moose with his car. He was coming up route 11 toward Masardis after dark and saw some moose on the side of the road. Luckily, he slowed way down to about 5 miles per hour before a moose stepped in front of his car. The moose wasn’t knocked down, but it there is a dent in the car marking the impact spot. Both he and the moose were fortunate that they were able to walk away from the incident unharmed.
Moose are responsible for a lot of fatal car accidents. I don’t like to drive around here after dark this time of year because of it. If you’re ever planning on coming to the field school, adjust your plans so you can get here before dark.
