THE STATUS AND MANAGEMENT OF MOOSE IN NORTH AMERICA - EARLY 1990'S
In the early 1990’s the North American moose population was estimated at about 1 million. Populations occurred in seven Canadian provinces/territories, and 11 U.S. states. Densities were believed to have been relatively stable or increasing in 17 jurisdictions, stable to decreasing in 3 and decreasing in only 2. Inn 1990-91, an estimated 436,240 licensed moose hunters harvested 88,630 moose in 22 jurisdictions, while a decade earlier 407,330 hunters cropped 70,390 in 19 jurisdictions. A wide variety of active and passive harvest strategies are used to manage the harvest of moose. Population estimates are presented for 23 National Parks where hunting is prohibited.
