Minnesota issues draft moose management plan

Wildlife managers hope a new moose management and research plan will keep the majestic mammals roaming northern Minnesota for generations to come. The draft seeks to bolster research into what’s killing Minnesota’s moose faster than they can reproduce and to find out what can be done, if anything. The proposal includes measures to restrict deer population densities in northeastern Minnesota because they carry brain worm parasites fatal to moose, a ban on recreational deer feeding in the primary moose range to avoid boosting deer numbers, new limits on moose hunting and steps to improve habitat.
