Thanks Jim. That link confirms Paul's post on elk. "The Algonquin Indians are the most populous and widespread North American Native groups, with tribes originally numbering in the hundreds and speaking several related dialects. They inhabited most of the Canadian region south of Hudson Bay between the Rockies and the Atlantic Ocean and, bypassing select territories held by the Sioux and Iroquois, the latter of whom had driven them out of their territory along the St. Lawrence and Ottawa rivers in the 17th and 18th centuries." I guess these areas are also Moose Country. And Alberta which is in Canada to my surprise.YOu should find Moose around Lakes, the bigger the better. The Great Slave Lake , the Great Bear Lake. And cruise-shiploads of snow. And in the US , around the Great Lakes would be my guess.
