Knowing where and when you might find wildlife is a critical aspect to wildlife photography. I'm happy to share where and when I have had the best results.

Moose Meadows, Bow Valley Parkway, Banff National Park
Found a Moose family, adult bull, female and a male yearling at 8:00 AM. Sunrise wasn't until 8:30, so it was still quite dark. Had to shoot at 800 ISO, but did manage to get some shots.
26 October 2014, Cooking Lake - Blackfoot Rec Area east of Sherwood Park
The Edmonton Journal reports that 12 – 15 wolves are frequenting the Elk Island National Park and Cooking Lake-Blackfoot Provincial Recreation Area, east of Sherwood Park. I haven't seen or heard them, but what an opportunity.
