A moose warning sign.Although generally timid, the males become very bold during the breeding season, when the females utter a loud call, often mistaken for lowing cattle; and at such times they fight both with their antlers and their hoofs. Fierce clashing of antlers between males is also not uncommon. U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt was referring to this behavior when he said "I am as strong as a bull moose" (some accounts say "fit as a bull moose"). Because of this, Roosevelt's Progressive Party became popularly known as the "Bull Moose Party".

The usual pace is a shambling trot, but when pressed moose can break into a gallop. The female gives birth to one or two young at a time, which are not spotted. The female moose is reported to kill more people in Canada than any other animal (far exceeding the North American Grizzly Bear). These large animals can be extremely protective of their young, and caution should be exercised when approaching a cow moose. In North America, during the winter one male and several females may form a "moose-yard" in the forest, which they keep open by trampling the snow. In the spring, moose can often been seen in drainage ditches at the side of roads, taking advantage of road salt which has run off the road. These minerals replace electrolytes missing from their winter diet.
