What does moose scat/poop look like and how can one distinguish it from the other similar scats namely deer and elk?

  • You can identify it easily by the huge, palmate antlers and the funny-shaped nose. – Mark Apr 26 '18 at 23:26

The biggest distinguishers of moose scat from elk and deer are size and color.

Moose scat is significantly bigger than either deer or elk scat around the size of a very large grape and usually reddish brown instead of black like deer or elk.

Notice both the size in comparison to the boot tracks and the reddish color,
