2020 Minnesota Moose Report
How has Minnesota’s moose population declined?
This graph shows the moose population trends in Minnesota over the last 25 years. Long-term moose counts are important for understanding the year-to-year differences that would be missed in a single-year survey.

The northeastern population has declined by roughly 64% since 2006, but the population has since stabilized in the study area.Read the report
