HOME RANGES AND MIGRATIONS OF THE KOSTROMA FARM MOOSE
The published literature about moose home ranges is rather contradictory. We studied summer (April–September) home ranges, degree of their variability, and features of moose migrations on the Kostroma moose farm during 1977–1989. The home range of a free-living, handreared female moose encompassed an aggregated area of 57 km2 over 8 years, with the yearly home range varying from 15 to 44 km2. Home ranges of her 4 female offspring proved to be about the same as their natal ranges. We also detected short term (1–3 day) migrations of cows during the breeding season.
