5. Not really. Hunting isn't driving the decline

Hunters only kill 2% of the population each year, and aren't a factor in the decline. The only reason they've cancelled the season is that it's the only thing they have control over, even though it makes almost no difference in the long run.

It's mostly just an indicator of how bad the collapse of MN moose populations has become, and how we have no idea how to stop it.
