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. It is no secret that moose are not great “groomers.” Neither are deer when you compare them to a monkey! The […]

NH Moose Hunt: So What’s the Plan?

*Editor’s Note* – In this press release from the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department, it says that 105 moose permits were issued for this year’s moose hunt out of 9,500 applicants. Looking at the additional information provided, we see that the first moose hunt, in 1988, allotted 75 permits when the state estimated there […]

Bled, scraped and starved to death: Exploding tick numbers threaten this New England beast

*Editor’s Comment* YAWN! Another copy and paste journalists repeats what he has been told without actually investigating anything.

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. We have linked to below a Maine Guide who says “confidently” that the moose population is “down about half.” I don’t know by what number this […]

Outdoors in Maine: Managing moose numbers best left to pros

*Editor’s Note* – Management of moose is the job of wildlife “pros.” However, not all wildlife pros know what they are doing and have agendas far and beyond “the best available science,” and sometimes even the rule of law. Therefore, we need watchdogs to keep a close eye on their every move, questioning those things […]

Mark Latti: Keeping an eye on the welfare of Maine moose 

*Note* This article does not tell us what the actual “recruitment” rate for moose has been since collaring began. This is vitally important in a better understanding of the fate of Maine’s moose.
