For just over two decades three towns in the North Country have held a Moose Festival at the end of August. And, it shouldn’t come as any surprise that such an homage would include a moose calling contest.

This one started with a demonstration by Roger Irwin, a wildlife photographer and experienced moose vocalist.

Now I’ll try and do a cow call. This is the cow. She’s asking for a bull to come visit her.”

There were about a dozen folks trying to make that moosey come-hither sound.
