ISSUE 159

Wyoming MRS: Moose

The moose hunting in Wyoming appears to be on track to continued stabilization after what has been a disastrous 15 years that has seen moose numbers drop like a rock, causing nearly 2/3 of the available moose tag quota to be cut. The net effect of a moose tag quota reduction of this magnitude has been devastating to the point system. When the Wyoming point system was first conceived more than 20 years ago the mathematical modeling placed moose draws to be about 7-12 points. Now we will see moose tags that take 30 years to draw. Last year (2015) Wyoming saw a bull moose harvest of just barely 300 (305) animals. Compare that to the 2001 bull moose harvest in Wyoming of 911 animals, you surely get the picture.
