AUGUSTA, Maine — With the preliminary numbers in, it looks as though moose hunters were more successful in 2015 than in 2014, and Maine’s moose population looks healthy. “We had a number of moose that weighed in excess of 1,000 pounds,” said Kantar.  “The moose we examined looked very healthy, with good percentage of body […]

Severe Winters, Warming Climate, Non-Evolving Moose – All At The Same Time

*Editor’s Note* – Don’t ever let facts get in the way of a made-up newspaper article aimed at selling copies. It is a shame that journalists are nonexistent, replaced by copy and paste robots.

Maine’s Moose Population Cut in Half?

*Editor’s Note* – Estimates are there are between 60,000 and 70,000 moose in Maine. A Maine biologists once told the Joint Standing Committee that her estimate was 90,000 moose.
