MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – After a few years of its absence, a moose hunt has been authorized by the Fond du Lac Band of Lake Superior Chippewa.
The Fond du Lac Band of Lake Superior Chippewa announced on their website Monday that a moose hunt will be authorized this fall.
Fond du Lac Band said recent research found the moose herd had stabilized in recent years and is now at around 4,000.
“Taking into account the traditions and cultural practices of the Band, the Fond du Lac Reservation Business Committee has authorized a moose hunt this fall,” the notice said.
The hunt will open on Saturday, Sept. 24 and will go through Dec. 31, or until 25 bull moose have been killed.
