IF you can draw the tag it's a very good unit with some nice bulls and they aren't fighting for survival due to wolves and grizzlies like a lot of the units on the west side of the state.
Buzz, are you familiar with this group?
There are some interesting parallels between the brain worm affecting the Great Lakes herds and this worm affecting the Shiras. Moose in close proximity with livestock and deer seems like a bad combo.
MH, yes I have seen the first link, but not the second.. Thank you for adding to this discussion in a positive way.
There are real issues with moose and I'm hoping that, through research, some solutions can be found.
This really hit the radar the first year I was on the Moose Committee and opened my eyes to the many problems facing moose.
We are funding a lot of research, and that's a good thing.
The OP is deserving of facts when spending 16 moose points he has invested a lot of time and money in.
To discount other options in very good units because of Michigans version of bar-stool biology talk...isn't going to help.
Facts matter and your opinion is trumped by the real facts of what is happening.
Went with unit 1. 38 is a great unit, but you need 18+ points. Also 1 is half the driving distance as 38 for me. Even with 16 points 1 is not a for sure tag, lots of people have been cashing points in the last couple years.
Yes, and even if it doesn't NR are not assured a single moose, sheep, goat, or bison tag via any statute or regulation.
