The Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters (OFAH) is sending out a call to moose hunters. The second phase of the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry (MNRF) Moose Project is underway and the ministry is seeking comment from moose hunters about pressures affecting moose populations such as predators, disease, etc. The deadline for comment is August 14, 2015.
Phase II focuses on what factors other than licensed hunting are impacting moose populations.
The OFAH is encouraging those interested in adding their input to e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and type ER 012-4587 in the subject line.
In response to declining moose populations, the MNRF made severe cuts to moose tag allowances in specific Wildlife Management Units (WMUs) in 2014.
OOD previously reported on those changes in February 2015.
