THE CASE AGAINST CALLING AND HUNTING DOMINANT MOOSE DURING THE MAIN RUT PERIOD - A VIEWPOINT
Many moose hunts across North America coincide with the main rut period. Vulnerability to calling and hunting, in addition to loss of natural fear of humans during hunts, may be compromising gene pools by removal of dominant (trophy) adults, and contravening the concept of fair chase. Alternative hunt options are proposed.
