I hope this forces DNR to get off their collective asses and do something.

Re: Mainland moose  I think it's generally accepted the cause of their demise is the brain worm (or is that still debated...?).  From what I've read that happens whenever the whitetail / moose populations cross (once the worm arrives).

If the above it true, is it worse spending money (wasting?) on trying to protect them?  No other area has been successful - why would NS be any different?  It's kind of like trying to prevent hurricanes - it's just a force of nature that is going to happen no matter what you do.  You can do a little, but in the end the hurricanes keep coming and the moose keep dying.

Most species decline is due to human activity and there is something we can (and should) do about it.  With Moose, it's not caused by mankind and there's nothing we can do about it.   Should we put $ into just delaying the inevitable?  

Having said that, if I'm wrong and we can do something that has a chance of reversing the population decline I think we should, I am just not sure we have that power in this case...?

Thoughts?  I'd really like to be wrong here - show me that I am!

i agree with joyrider as far as the mainland moose is concerned. It is just not a viable subspecies at this point. If I stable population is desired, they should look to the highlands for stock. Much hardier animal imo. Now having said this, is it really wise to have a thriving population of moose in Mainland Ns? Wouldn't it bring all the current problems associated with the cape Breton herd?

Research has shown that 1 in 5 Liberal supporters is "just as stupid" as the other 4!

A liberal is a lot like a slinkey........They both put a smile on your face when you push them down the stairs!

 Thanks to all on this site who assisted with my taxidermy season . I hope I am even busier next season and can continue to produce even better mounts.

What don't tell me clearcutting might stop i don't believe it cause no NS gov in the last 30 yrs has a clue on how to manage our indandered species or the forests.I'd say the MCneil libs are the worst i can remember in my lifetime for garbage conservation decisions and they have pushed clearcutting the most which as we know kills more animals because of destroyed habitat.I think nothings is going to change other than getting worse instead of better.

Nah clear-cutting won't stop due to politics and companies here have absolutely zero clue or desire to LEARN how to do selective cutting , saying that they use excuses can't use today's equipment for selective cutting due to risk of damage to machinery and higher operating cost with more time .

I know a spot they just went in to get started to clear cut a very small spot , saying they are running out of areas to conduct logging operations , that are not private lands . Never mind the fact clear-cutting does kill endangered species and habitat , like the MC Liars Liberals stated , clear-cutting will not stop if it stops companies from clearing a profit on a job . In other words just go as you normally do and use that as your excuse .

Besides MC Liars Club (libtard) just closed down a pull mill , where's the wood going , what to a over priced chip mill for expensive power !

Selective cutting was done yrs back when guys walked the woods with chain saw in hand , stating smaller trees less yield and same amount of labor , so let them grow for few yrs and they will be there for next go around . Can't have that today , now just knock over the less desirable stuff and smash it up just to leave just as much wood on the ground and taken out on trucks .

Mankind has decimated wildlife and plant life since their origin so why would they stop now.
NS gov has no interest in protecting anything except their own pensions.

Joyrider I think you are correct. Mainland Nova Scotia just does not have enough generally undisturbed habitat to sustain a moose population. Poor woodlot harvesting practices, lots of access roads , coyotes, black bears, brain worm and poaching have all helped lead to a decline in the mainland moose. The mainland does have pockets of isolated moose habitat such as sanctuaries but I feel the number of towns, hamlets, villages and farming land spread through the mainland ,not to mention major highways and roads make it difficult to provide the moose the undisturbed habitat they require in order to thrive.
