So went out to one of my spots. showed up to park and there was people everywhere which usually isnt the case, i was a little discouraged.But i decided to use the human taffic as an advantage so i decided to stay and hunt. I get up in my stand about 2:30and wait and wait ....nuthin. then right at 530 i hear single twig snap. i look and see a huge dark mass???? It gets within 40 yards it's a Beautiful Cow Moose:icon_e_surprised:! she hung out within 30 to 40 yards of me til the remander of legal hours.i was swithching between watching her browse and waiting for a deer to show. she was the only one to show. But i was amped to see such a beautiful animal. she didnt even spook when i climbed off the stand to go home! walking out got within 20 yards of her and she just hung out in the pines. No deer but a sight like that still made a day out in the woods well worth it!

Never seen a moose in CT yet, did see moose sign a few times though and heard one was seen around. I've seen them up close in Maine and new Brunswick though. Very cool.

I would say that in itself made for a near perfect day in the woods. The only thing that would have made it perfect would have been if you got a deer.
