Minnesota moose population ‘stable,’ while elk count is called off by DNR due to lack of snow

The Minnesota DNR recently completed its winter moose survey in northeastern Minnesota. This year’s survey found little change in the population of the species, with an estimated 3,470 moose. Fifty-three plots were surveyed. (Photo courtesy of Minnesota DNR)
