Could not agree more. Moose population has declined, and it is time for all Minnesotans to follow the DNR lead on this. Thank you DNR for doing a great job!!

We used to see all kinds of moose up at the cabin. The last few years years no moose, fewer deer, all kinds of wolves. Where there used to be deer and moose tracks, this year all wolf tracks.

Good idea! They haven't been seen at farm up north for many years. Don't know whether it is the illness many have contracted or they are just moving farther up north to Canada.

This is a direct result of reintroducing the wolves. Why did we do it??? The wolves have turned to be more of a problem, that good. Get rid of the wolves.

Won't limit hunting? Why not! From the Star Trib in February 2012, "Minnesota's moose population has dropped by half in the past five years, and officials say the iconic animal could be gone from the state in 20 years." How short sighted can we be?

Moose got it easy with no wolves to chase them down.

Add a moose donation line to the MN Tax forms, I am a Republican and I'd still pay!

For more moose you need more food and less predation. So cut more trees to increase browse. Cutting trees also makes for more deer and more snowshoe hare- both higher up on the menu for wolves than moose. Shoot less deer in wolf country. Shoot some wolves. Only hunt bull moose. If you don't do ALL of those, it won't matter.
