Michigan Moose Hunting Soon?

A moose hunting advisory council has officially been announced in Michigan to determine if and when the population of moose is sufficient to allow limited hunting of the animals.

Moose were brought to Michigan from Ontario in 1987, with the Safari Club International donating $1 million to the effort. One of the men on the advisory council is the current president of SCI in this area.

According to estimates, there are now about 500 moose in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. At this time there has been no mention of when a season might be opened, only that this council will be responsible for making a recommendation to the Natural Resources Commission, which makes that decision.

At least they are talking

At least they are talking about it. 500 animals is not that may but I know that is considered a huntable population in some areas. Michigan has some beautiful country and a lot of hunting opportunity. Hopefully the wolves won't get them before the real hunting starts.

i'd like to see about 5000

i'd like to see about 5000 animals in the population, but 5k huge land mammals need a lot of territory to survive.

i'm glad to see there's progress in the world of hunting!
