To be honest our Moose herd has been hit hard. With predation, improper management from the Province and the native over harvest it isn't worth coming here to Moose hunt.
Ticks have been pretty bad, We've had a few couple mild winters here. Plus the CWD, the large predator population, calf harvest and unregulated native harvests. I'd honestly like for them to cancel the moose hunt all together to help and allow them to rebound
Moose in Ontario are being attacked from all sides. Government funding of areal surveys is down, as is enforcement. We're getting damn good at hunting calves after 25 years chasing them. The bears are hard on calves, although nobody seems to know to what extent. I'm sure the wolves get their fair share as well. Added to that is the fact that we've got a growing and completely unreported native harvest. It's a mess and the population is in a nosedive.
