    Moose numbers Sweden vs BC

    I was just doing a little reading on a moose hunt in Sweden and found a few things interesting. For a country that is half the size of BCs 950,000 sq. kms vs 450,000 sq. kms they have 300-400,000 moose vs BC's 170,000. Seems like they they are doing a much better job at maintaining a valuable resource than we are.

    Sweden does have wolves and bears but don’t know how they compare density wise

    Sweden doesn't have special groups with special rights.

    Did they have programs where a calf was harvested rather than a bull ?
    The older cows tend to drop twins for some time . . . making them a very valuable asset in game management.
    Does Sweden have a population segment that harvests everything all year ?
    Feed . . . ?

    That’s what happens when 1 percent of the population takes a very disproportionate number of the game animals and have no discretion whether it had antlers or didn’t.

    Maybe it is something too due with feed. I remember seeing a pie chart someone posted and being surprised that in a huge area the sizeof BC, with our sparse population that there was a percentage of moose dying of starvation. Pretty embarrassing for us. Sweden also has 10 million people vs our 5 million and they harvest 100,000 moose a year.
