THE HISTORY AND STATUS OF MOOSE MANAGEMENT IN NEW HAMPSHIRE
The status of moose (Alces alces americana) in the state of New Hampshire is reviewed as is the history and present status of management of the species. Moose occurred statewide when the state was first colonized by European settlers. Shortly after settlement the species was nearly extirpated due to unregulated hunting. Moose were then protected and have since made a strong comeback. Today, the moose again occupies its historic range. The species is currently managed as a multiple use resource, important for its aesthetic and big game values.
