OFAH Concerned About Moose Tag Draw

The Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters wants the Ministry of Natural Resources to do a more comprehensive study of moose in Ontario.

The province is giving out fewer hunting tags this season because of population declines.

OFAH's Mark Ryckman says more needs to be done to explore all of the reasons for that decline.

Ryckman says if hunting isn't the sole reason for the decline in numbers, the cut in moose tags isn't going to have much an impact if other factors continue to go ignored such as predation by wolves or bears.
