Minnesota Moose Population Continues to Decline
Following the latest moose population survey, which shows numbers continuing to decline, it's likely that the number of moose hunting permits will be cut in half for this fall's Minnesota moose season. WKBT.com has a brief article posted.
DNR area wildlife manager Tom Rusch in Tower says there is no clear answer why the moose population is declining.
Rusch tells MPR he also doesn't expect reducing the number of hunting permits will have much impact on the decline.
