Moose on the loose

This is the picture I wanted to take the day I had my ill fated fall in the garage.

He is the brainchild of a very talented artist, Denny, who lives near Aurelia. The moose resided on the east hill over looking Cherokee and made from scrap metal, the land where he lives belongs to Steve and he put the hunting vest on the moose for his protection.

It will give you quite a start when you come up over the hill and see this big moose and one young granddaughter told her grandmother when she came to see her, that she saw a moose on the way. The grandmother said, "Well, sit there and minute and you will see he doesn't move."

Denny has made other creations, a dinosaur, a buffalo, an over sized bicycle and Jack and the Beanstalk reside on the side of their corncrib. I am now the 'Hawkeye' for Cherokee Co. for Our Iowa magazine. It's a volunteer position, we keep our eyes out for things that go on in the county that would be of interest so I sent in the moose with a little information about Denny, in hopes that they will want to feature him. After all, it's not every day you see a moose in a hunting vest on your travels.

  1. Julie, the 'spots' on the moose look quite synchronized so please tell me that hunters weren't using this moose for target practice!?! How cool that you are now a 'reporter' you should love that you get to also include a little bit of your excellent writing skills as reading material ?? that alone should make you a Pulitzer candidate!
