CAUTION: READING THE WATERFRONT REVITALIZATION PROJECT IN IT'S ENTIRETY MAY CAUSE PERMANENT BRAIN DAMAGE!!
NOTE: In the Adirondack Chronology there is a mention of a moose being shot at Saranac Lake in 1965 and entered in the Trudeau Big Buck Contest. The writers were taken in by a prank in the Adirondack Daily Enterprise perpetuated by Bill McLaughlin. Below is a link to that photo of Bob Liddy with a moose he shot in Canada!
