MN moose

Just read on CNN that MN is canceling all future moose hunts due to radical drop in moose numbers. A spokesman for the MN DNR listed a whole bunch of possible causes except for one that would have been on the top of my list...wolves! Several western states have shown a deline in moose, elk and deer numbers where there are large wolf populations. Their DNR is starting a GPS /radio transmitter tracking study so maybe they will have to include predation by wolves and initiate a wolf control program. I wonder if this large impact on wildlife was included in the presentation to reintroduce wolves across the west? Betcha not.

Freedom is NOT free!

Re: MN moose

A haiku is just like a normal American poem, except it doesnt rhyme and is totally stupid.

Re: MN moose

No surprise. The entire goal behind wolf reintroduction is to eliminate sport hunting.

Anyone that believes otherwise needs to understand the UN's Agenda 21.

Re: MN moose

When I was out in MN in 2011 on a wildfire the local guys from the forest service blamed wolves for the declining moose population. I would think the guys that spend everyday in the woods would have a pretty good idea whats actually happening. We didn't see any wolves, but did tracks on the shore of the one lake where we were working. This was around Ely, MN in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area.

Iím a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work the more I have of it.
