Re: Killers of BCs Moose
As a basic rule in healthy moose populations, with adequate habitat human hunting is compensatory (reflective of the percentage thar would die anyway), hiwever I think we can all agree that in much of the province the moose populations are not healthy and habitat is lacking. There is countless studies that show these conditions, combined with high predator numbers, human hunting is actually additive. What makes it even more complex is that 100 years ago away from the rockies there were hardly no moose in the bottom 2/3rds of the province. Are moose numbers returning to their proper historical levels? If so should we stop it or should strive to have their numbers at the artificially inflated numbers that were brought about by logging and predator extermination done in the early to mid 1900s?
I don't shoot innocent animals... Just the ones that look guilty!
