Any news on Band members starving for lack of protein being they didn't get any moose? Of course not! Subsistence hunting and fishing rights are of zero need in these modern day times. Shame on the Mn. DNR for pandering to this in your face attitude by the Bands if they agree to "Treaty harvest" for moose in 2014 and beyond.

I think that the cold winter is good for the moose. The cold may kill off some ticks
