Moose Driving Conditions

Drive carefully !!Tourists are advised to Drive Cautiously

Always keep your "Moose eyes" open - particularly during spring & summer months..

A high percentage of moose collisions occur during daylight hours on straight parts of the roadway.. Moose are most commonly seen at dusk or dawn.. Moose graze at this time.. Moose can weigh up to 2500 pounds!!

Local residents are always conscious of the possibility of such risk - and maintain slower speeds, particularly during spring and summer months..

Night-time Driving

Moose are often difficult to see - especially while driving at night.. This is due to their dark, "non-reflective", coats of fur..

Also, moose "eyes" do not reflect well.. Moose stand very tall - and their eyes are usually above headlight level..
Always drive with your "high-beams" - wherever possible..
It might be advisable to dim your interior dashboard lights (to allow less distraction & better night-time visibility)..
Ensure that you are able to safely stop your vehicle within the same distance as your headlight range..


If a collision if unavoidable, try to clip either the head or hindquarters of the moose with the edge of your bumper.. This will no doubt spin your car and also perhaps spin the moose, hopefully away from your hood or roof..

Thankfully, most roads have extra-wide clearings, which allow you to see moose approaching the sides of our roads..

St. Anthony residents enjoy sunset drives to view the spectacular moose population.. Accidents rarely occur - but, it is important to remain alert and maintain a safe speed..


Travel the Viking Trail to St. Anthony and view a land that is unique & magical.. Experience nature at it's finest, enjoy boat tours that will leave lasting memories and meet friendly people along the way..
