ldb pikester said:This is a very sad time for me. One of the main reasons I bought my cottage in area 26 was because of the general moose season. This cost me a small fortune. With the low numbers, and cancelation of the season and now the metis hunting rights thing. I feel that the moose numbers will be gone forever. The area has a high native and metis population and the moose will not withstand this amout of pressure. Some time ago at one of the moose management meetings an old fellow said, that soon if you to see a moose in area 26 it will have to be in a PICTURE. How true he was.
