Did a full day snowmobile tour with a Maine guide. For those that haven't sledded in awhile or are not familiar with the area I highly recommend this. Well worth the money. Saw things and went places that we wouldn't have done otherwise.

We were warned -- September is not the greatest month to see moose, which are active in the Spring in the lake and ponds and in October during the height of rut. That being said (and we will come back one Spring), our guide found...More

If we go on a safari in the middle of September, is there still a good chance to see moose? Would we be more likely to succeed during an evening or a morning safari?
