Elusive Moose...

My obsession with moose began at summer camp in Craftsbury Common, Vermont.  I'm not really sure how it came about but my goal that summer was to see a moose.  My campers would mail me care packages after their sessions at camp had ended.  In one of my care packages, was a stuffed moose and a note stating something like, "...this is the only moose you'll see this summer..."  Although I hate to admit it, still to this day that camper was right- there was no moose sighting that summer.  Sure you see street signs for Moose Crossing but I've still yet to see a moose crossing the street.   

I know some may find the moose to be down right ugly but there's something about them.  Maybe it's just their elusive ways?  After seeing this:

I started to wonder if I could do something similar, only with a faux moose head?  Currently, I'm brainstorming ways to make this happen.  After all, I have oyster plates that I collect.  I'd like to see them displayed.  I think the perfect solution is to "class" them up with a faux moose head.  

Then again, maybe I've seen one too many episodes of Duck Dynasty?  I'll be sure to take photos of this project, if I ever make my moose dreams a reality!
