You do not want to interact with a moose in your car, it can be deadly. If you search using the word moose in the Vermont forums you will find plenty of information including this very recent discussion: tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g28966-i656-k34523…

I nearly hit a moose near there this past weekend. Rt. 15 in Underhill. At night. Next to a swamp. I missed it by about 2 feet.

The truth is that a casual visitor to Vermont isn't likely to see a moose. People see them occasionally on roadsides, especially in rural, wet, marshy areas. Keep your eyes peeled as you drive around the rural areas of the state. There are a lot of them in the Northeast Kingdom.

Live here long enough and you'll see them from time to time. Or if you get a permit to hunt one, you could go on a hunt -- spending your whole vacation tracking through Victory Bog looking for one.

But if you're here for a week or two, your chances are slim.

Agreed. I've had about 5 moose sightings in VT, after living here for over 20 yrs. Good luck however. They tend to like swampy areas and rugged fields with stuff to graze on.
