Grand Portage biologist discusses 2017 moose hunt

An estimated 42 bull moose will likely be harvested this year during a moose hunt by three Chippewa bands in northeastern Minnesota.

The Grand Portage Band of Lake Superior Chippewa and the Bois Forte Band of Chippewa will take a combined total of 18 bull moose in northeastern Minnesota this year, including large portions of Cook County. In addition, 24 moose can be harvested by members of the Fond du Lac Band of Lake Superior Chippewa.

The hunt is expected to begin Sept 23.

This year’s hunt by the Chippewa bands follows a similar hunt that took place last fall in 1854 Ceded Territory in northeastern Minnesota.

Seth Moore, director of biology and environment for the Grand Portage Band of Lake Superior Chippewa, talks with WTIP’s Joe Friedrichs about the 2017 moose hunt in this interview.
