just checked our pics/vids (live & dead moose) of CB & Nfld moose - not all but most CB moose have brown on back with darker (black?) down sides. The Nfld moose are darker looking but maybe that was due to wetter weather conditions or maybe the camera/photographer. As far as size goes, my take is - moose from both places are just plain big critters lol.Nice pics - could be wrong but these C.B. moose look more brown in color to the NL moose which seems more grey. Also the NL moose seem to be taller while the C.B. moose seem more stockier and fuller.
I haven't been lucky enough to get a C.B. tag in the last 100 or so years so just going by what I see in the pics compared to what I've shot in NL. Also, some say they taste a little different ...? And good luck to Gilbert with his health.
