Maybe the MN DNR, [Dept. of No Results}, should take some of the “2 BILLION DOLLARS” from the State Lottery and start “Cloning” Moose,,, OR put a stop to the “Let Burn Poicy” and destroying their/our environment.
It was only 100,000 acres “Let Burnt” last year. The way it is looking this year,,, the whole BWCA may go up in SMOKE.
Now you have the DNR talking ‘climate change’ and declining Moose herds !!???
Now there is suddenly is a ‘Blue Haze’ up North ??!!!
Now suddenly the MPCA is attacking the Mining Industry for “Blue Haze” .
I’m sure the “Blue Haze” has nothing to do with the Pagami Fire,, or Industry in Canada and/or Industry half around the world !!!
“The Friends of th BWCA” should pack up their ‘canoes’ and go to China and India and do their Belly Aching if they were ‘Truly” concerned about “Blue Haze”.

Real responsible of the DNR. They expect the moose to disappear from its southern range in the next few years so lets just help the remaining numbers of moose get there quicker. I have a better idea, why dont they just allow the remaining moose heard be shot off all together. I am sure with there thinking they can find a justification for that also. Manage, the DNR has not managed anything with any success that I can ever remember.

This info from the State of Maine moose hunting info.
A state that has upwards of 30,000 moose and sits at roughly the same latitude as Minnesota.
Note the fact that adult predation of adult moose is “low” beacause those types of predators do not live in Maine.(i.e. wolf)
Also note that moose infected with brainworm “always” die. Thank the whitetail for this.
Thin the wolf and thin the deer if you want more moose.
“Moose die from a variety of causes: legal and illegal harvest, road kills, other accidents (drowning, falls, etc.), predation, disease, starvation, and old age. Harvest and road kills account for 2,000 to 2,500 moose deaths a year. Predation of adult moose is low, because predators capable of killing adult moose are rare or absent from Maine. Black bears, which are common in Maine, are potential predators of moose calves. Three parasites can cause mortality in moose in Maine: brain worm, winter tick, and lung worm. Moose infected with brain worm almost always die, but winter tick and lung worm infestations rarely kill moose”
