Moose Tags At A Premium In Kenora WMU's

Local hunters hoping to bag a moose this year might have a tough time.

The MNR has reduced the number of tags for both bull and cow moose.

Overall, northwestern Ontario is looking at an 88 percent reduction.

In Kenora Wildlife Management Unit 7-B, there will only be 17 tags available down from 25 last year.

Just north of the city in Wildlife Management Unit 6, the number of tags has dropped to
just 21 this year, compared to 40 last year.

The MNR blames a declining moose population for the drastic reduction in tags.
