Moose Season Called Off in Some Parts of Manitoba
Due to concern about the decreasing moose population, the 2011 season has been called off in some areas of Manitoba. Conservation Minister Bill Blaikie decided to call off the season in the Porcupine Mountains after aerial reports from the year show a decline in population indicators. Every step in management is made to help the sustainability of the herd.
Not only is the season being called off in some areas, but some areas will be closed to the public, with movement towards controlling natural predators as well. If hunters are concerned, they can get a refund or ask for a season change, draw dates have been changed from July 16th to August 3rd, from Global Winnipeg.
