New study by renowned Minnesota scientist links wolf numbers to moose calf survival #archery

Of course it’s the wolves.

Some people try to say that it’s parasites from deer that are killing moose or global warming, ticks, or whatever else…..if that’s the case, how is there a soon to be over-population of moose on Isle Royale, just 56 miles away, basically a moose utopia that is somehow un-effected by global warming, ticks, or parasites?

Sure the parasites from deer that are transferred from moose shouldn’t be on Isle Royale because there aren’t deer there. But these parasites come from the ground and attach to deer and moose, obviously they should be at Isle Royale also.

New study by renowned Minnesota scientist links wolf numbers to moose calf survival

By JOHN MYERS | Forum News Service

In yet another effort to untangle the mystery behind Minnesota’s diminished moose population, renowned wolf researcher David Mech is reporting a stark correlation between wolf population levels and survival of moose calves.

Mech was the lead author of a research paper published online this January in the journal Wildlife Society Bulletin that found rapidly increasing wolf numbers in Northeastern Minnesota from 2001 to 2009 coincided with the rapid demise of moose in the region — from nearly 9,000 moose in 2006 to fewer than 4,000 in recent winters.

Mech, who has been studying wolves in an 800-square-mile area of the Superior National Forest for decades, said wolf numbers more than doubled while moose declined, from fewer than 50 wolves in the study area in 2001 to nearly 100 by 2010.

The number of moose calves surviving to their first winter peaked at 0.93 per cow when wolf numbers were lower but dropped as low as 0.24 when wolf numbers peaked, the study notes. That level is considered unsustainable for moose to continue a thriving population, especially with so many adult moose dying from other causes.

But the trend may be reversing.

A recent stabilization of the Minnesota moose herd, and a slight increase in calf survival seen in the last few winter surveys, also coincides with a sharp decline in wolf numbers in the study area, the study found, showing the correlation works in reverse, too.

The study cites a previously unreported decline in wolves in the heart of the national forest in recent years — down to 34 or fewer wolves in the study area in 2017, less than half of the 82 wolves estimated in 2012.

Moose calf survival increased some as wolf numbers dropped, from the 0.24 low in 2011 to 0.36 per cow last year.

“We do not claim that wolf numbers only influence moose population during declines nor that wolves are the only factor affecting moose numbers,” the study concludes.

Recent wolf and moose population data only show “suggestive information” on the plight of moose, the study noted. “However, our new and revised data signal a critical downward trend in the wolf population in our study area and an apparent response by moose.”

Wolves in the study area declined due to fewer moose to eat, the study notes, but also because of hunting and trapping allowed in 2012, 2013 and 2014 when wolves were briefly off the federal protected list.

The study stops short of saying wolves were the primary cause of the overall moose decline.

“Would the Northeastern Minnesota moose population be declining if there were no wolves? Our findings do not answer this question definitively,” the report notes. But the findings “suggest that the decline of Northeastern Minnesota moose since 2006 at least would not have been as steep without wolves’ presence and influence.”

Mech and co-authors John Frieberg and Shannon Barber-Meyer also go back to show similar relationships in past decades, noting a brief but dramatic moose decline in the early 1990s corresponded with a rapid rise in wolves at the same time.

The new study doesn’t refute any of a number of other research efforts looking to solve the moose mystery. Recent Minnesota Department of Natural Resources research shows wolves are clearly a factor in moose deaths, along with parasites such as winter ticks and a brainworm spread by deer. Bears also kill a significant number of newborn moose calves each spring.

Other researchers note that a long-term trend to warmer and less snowy winters has helped push deer numbers up in the moose range of Minnesota, spreading more brainworm north. That warming trend also has lead to a higher survival rate of ticks. And scientists say warmer weather leads to more moose stress, causing moose to eat less and store less fat to survive winter.

Other researchers note that habitat for moose has declined in many areas making it harder for them to thrive. Moose like second-generation forests, such as those that followed recent large fires in the region, some of the few areas where moose numbers have actually gone up in recent years.

State and tribal wildlife officials currently are conducting aerial surveys of moose in selected area of Northeastern Minnesota and will release their updated annual population estimate later this winter.

how do you attract young moose?

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

Any advise on how to attract a young buck during the rut?

Going moose hunting again this year where I was successful but "lucky" by being patient as he walked right next to my stand (maybe 5 yds).

Would like to be a bit more active by calling but I don’t want to use the wrong calls and scare a young one away.

Thanks

I just got a call saying my Moose hunt has been cancelled because apparently some guy has been driving around on a snowmobile shooting cows with a glock…:confused:
On the good side, I was offered a red footed grasshopper hunt instead….at the same cost of coarse. 😉
Just jokes, so lighten up folks!!

Moose hunting: Alberta vs. Newfoundland

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

I am planning a moose hunt for 2015 and my initial location choice is Newfoundland due to the number of moose they have and the average price of the hunt.

That being said, I have seen several posts by folks who say Alberta is the place to go if you are hunting moose with a bow. Some Alberta hunts I looked at were comparable in price so now I am undecided.

I am not particular about moose size or sex; if it’s got moose hair on it and it’s legal then that is good enough for me. I will be using a longbow and want the animals CLOSE if that bears any weight on your opinion.

What are your thoughts on this matter? Alberta or Newfoundland for bowhunting moose?

Thanks,

Darren

What’s Killing Minnesota’s Moose?

The iconic monarch of the North Woods is dying at an alarming rate. Is it climate change, a brain-piercing parasite, or is something else to blame?

by Jessica Benko @jessicabenko • July 15, 2013

Five months into the mortality study, 92 of the 107 moose collared back in January remain. Wolves killed five, not including #075 and one other moose that died from an apparent attack and subsequent infections. (Researchers think that wolves cause fewer than 10 percent of adult moose deaths overall each year, but the predators have their greatest success in late winter, when moose are weakened by dwindling fat stores and hindered by deep or crust-covered snow.) Winter ticks drained the blood from three (which can cause anemia and fluid buildup around the heart), brainworm excavated the brain and eye of another, and as-yet-undetermined causes took another four. But none of those causes of death tell the full story. It will take several years of data collection for the researchers to tease out patterns of co-infection by parasites and disease and correlations with temperature and habitat changes due to climate change.

.


So, 15 moose were killed. 7 of them were killed by wolves. That’s 47% of the moose being killed by wolves, not 10%.

So, nearly 50% of the moose are killed by wolves…..but that can’t be the problem. Wut?
