Survey results show Minnesota’s moose population remains low but stable in 2019. This is the 8th consecutive year of stability in the population. The DNR began modern moose surveys in 2005. Since then, significant population decline from 2009 to 2012 has stabilized. The annual population survey is critical to tracking gender and age makeup of the moose. This allows the DNR to monitor the health and well-being of Minnesota’s moose population. The DNR also is conducting research to determine how winter nutrition affects moose survival and reproductive success.
