Moose Hunting WMU 1C
Moose Hunting in WMU 1C
Moose hunting is managed across Ontario with distinct numbers in mind for the various regions where they exist. In the far north regions, moose numbers are intentionally aimed at maintaining lower numbers of moose. The woodland caribou is given priority for food and habitat considerations.
Typically, the ministry would like to see the moose population at less than 10 per 100 square kilometers so that they do not compete heavily for resources required to maintain the woodland caribou herd.
Keeping that goal in sight, the moose population is relatively low compared to other WMU’s and access is quite limited and distant. Although tag allocations are fairly liberal, the actual success rate is quite low (about 16% bulls and 5% cows) and in turn hunter interest in the region is quite low as well.
