Those days are gone. The last time I saw a moose in the wild was the year 2000. People I know who hunt or photograph moose are having a heck of a time seeing them anywhere, and for good reason. The species is dying and climate change is the top culprit.
Now the Minnesota DNR proposes to name the moose as an endangered species, but there's real question as to whether these efforts are just too late to save Bullwinkle in Frostbite Falls. Controversy is expected
UPDATE: My mistake, I misread the story. This would elevate the moose on the "species of concern" and put it on the endangered list, but not quite trigger the end of the hunting season. Nevertheless, the hunting season is one of the things at stake in the long run.
