  1. Thanks for providing enough data. We know among the cervid species, moose hunting is the most common but we still can’t take appropriate action.We must take action as soon as possible.Have you written any post about the necessity of stooping the moose hunting?
    I like your post but I can’t find the source of data. It will helpful to my research to get the people trust.

  2. So after the two week period, a calf may not be shot, what if the calf is with the cow and she is shot, the calf will die. Rethink your regulations. Ask the hunters, not the guy sitting at his desk.
