Moose hunting activity and harvests

This data breaks down bull moose, cow moose, calf moose and total harvest numbers by:

  • wildlife management unit (WMU)
  • calendar year

Harvest and active hunter numbers are estimates based on replies received from a sample of hunters and are therefore subject to statistical error.

In addition to the values presented, from 2006-2017, an estimated annual average of approximately 160 calf moose were harvested across the province by approximately 6,400 active resident hunters who did not apply for an adult validation tag.

Additional technical and statistical notes can be found in the data dictionary.
