Map would tell hunters where moose harvest is ‘above sustainable levels’
Mar 09, 2017
With the ever-increasing development of roadways and new technology available to hunters, Yukon moose biologist Sophie Czetwertynski says there’s a risk of over-harvesting the animal in some areas of the territory.
That’s why she’s developing what she is calling a “harvest pressure map”.
“What the map is going to identify is basically moose populations where harvest is above sustainable levels,” she said.
Czetwertynski hopes the map will help to educate both resident and non-resident hunters in Yukon, by indicating which areas of territory are at risk.
