Big Steer and Cool Moose

The Big Steer is still there, and they've added "Cool Moose," a sculpture splayed on the roof of a PT Cruiser.

As an advertising vehicle for Country Smoke House, the car top moose seems to be enjoying the ride.

Big Steer

The big steer is an advertisement for The Smokehouse, a local butcher shop, regional food and gift shop. The steer is on the west side of M-53 and can't be missed as it sits about 10 feet off the shoulder of the road. The shop operates a smoke barbecue shack next to the steer that is open on weekends. A must for that trip up to Port Austin.
