SELECTIVE HARVEST, COMPENSATORY MORTALITY AND MOOSE IN ONTARIO
In 1983 Ontario is introducing a Selective Harvest System for moose that controls the harvest of bulls and cows. Bull and cow validation tags limit the number of adult animals available, however, there are no harvest restrictions on calves. An increase in hunting pressure on calves is expected, however, and excessive calf harvest is not considered likely. Hunting mortality is assumed to be additive on adults and partially compensatory on calves. If these assumptions are wrong it will be necessary to modify the program.
