STATUS AND MANAGEMENT OF MOOSE IN WYOMING
The Shiras moose population in Wyoming is estimated at 12,000 and has significantly increased in size and distribution since the late 1800s. At present, the Wyoming Game and Fish Department operates within a planned management system involving inventory, objective and strategy setting, and monitoring. Wyoming's moose population is subdivided into discrete herd units, with each being managed toward a population objective. Objectives are set according to public input and biological considerations. Helicopter surveys, hunter harvest surveys, tooth aging, and population modeling are tools used to manage moose in Wyoming.
