    This exactly.
    It doesn't help either that they nuke the shit out of every cutblock.Maybe they should ask CN Rail about the number of moose get killed each year in BC.

    This exactly.
    Yup....if they put some of that $$ every year into de-activating a certain amount of forest service road - spur roads, which will limit poachers and FN's, I believe it will help greatly...

    Exactly...through some FSR deactivation and a predator reduction program, it would help that aspect of their survival as well...

    Sample is still biased..leave the collAR off and insert a chip...I'll bet the results will be different.

    Good call WWD.I agree the chip method would bring out a different outcome but maybe not a positive prognosis?

    Please post data to indicate what constitutes their definition of "Unlicensed Hunter"?

    Collaring and chipping beasts is a reprehensible factor and a bad idea. Best not to mess with them until it's time to collect BACKSTRAPS!!!

    Reduced opportunity is almost always a bad idea. That's ALOT of tags to tug, dang!
