Moose are large prey animals first introduced in the 2.7.3 update. They are the largest and most dangerous prey animals in the game whose carcasses offer the most rewarding sources of food when successfully hunted and killed. Moose are dark brown with lighter legs, long ears and an extended snout.

Moose are solitary creatures which do not group together in herds. It is harder to find moose whilst exploring the wilderness as they do not have any defined zones in the same way that elk inhabit designated hunting grounds.

Bull and cow moose appear in both single player and multiplayer. In scent vision, toggled by the V key, players can easily identify moose by their ? and melrose scent trails.



Behavior

They are passive towards players and their mate only from a distance; when approached, moose may stand their ground and attack the player if approached, with bulls dealing significantly more damage than that of a bull elk. Neither gender should be underestimated however as both can quickly and easily overpower any solitary player hunting them without the support of a pack. Cows will either stand their ground or flee.

Occasionally, a pair of bulls can be found and observed fighting each other.


Calves

Main article: Moose calf

At present, there are no calves in the game associated with moose.


Carcass

Main article: Carcass#Moose carcasses

Depending on the difficulty setting, carcasses' spawn rates will vary. Moose carcasses, while less frequent, will have a chance of spawning in place of an elk carcass during world generation.

A carcass will provide a decent source of health recovery to players and sustenance for pups.


Locations

Amethyst Mountain

During Amethyst Mountain, a pair of bulls can be observed rutting (fighting) towards the edge of the forest, not far from the player's spawn location. This event is more likely to be triggered at dawn or dusk than during broad daylight.

Common locations to find moose include the Dry Creek and Amethyst Mountain.


Slough Creek

During Survival of the Pack, moose can be encountered anywhere on the northern side of the creek, from Sandbar Crossing to the Old Oxbow.


Lost River

In Lost River, moose may be encountered on the hilltop or around town.


Hunting

Players are now encouraged to hunt prey in order to provide themselves and their pack with food so as to ensure survival.


Solo strategies

Moose are very dangerous prey to a wolf without a pack; hunting them solo is suicide and as such, doing so is highly discouraged.




Team strategies

A pack of wolves stands a better chance of tackling moose than a lone wolf.

Trivia

  • The antlers of bulls vary with the seasons as they do in real life. For example, during the spring, they have smaller, velvety antlers.
  • Moose in Yellowstone are smaller than their arctic counterparts.
  • The flap of skin under the neck of a moose (which is present regardless of gender) is called a waddle.
