Using the science

On the heels of last weeks win for scientific wildlife management, the Michigan Natural Resource Commission (MNRC) underscored what it means to manage wildlife…scientifically…and not by the ballot box.

Remember that moose were established in Michigan as a game species in 2010.  But the MNRC decided not to hold a hunting season because the data and the science do not support it right now.

Hopefully, this will reassure folks who would question the MNRC and the MI DNR’s ability to manage wildlife.
