9/13 NOTICE: 2013 Moose Hunt Canceled
After numerous discussions with Band members, the Reservation
Business Committee has voted to cancel the Fond du Lac Band’s 2013
moose hunting season in the 1854 Ceded Territory. The RBC based its
decision on the dramatic decline of the moose population. Although
state and tribal biologists have both concluded that tribal hunting
has not been a significant factor in the moose decline, the Band has
a longstanding cultural tradition of conservation and stewardship
over natural resources in the ceded territories. The RBC believes
that we need to do what we can to help stabilize the moose
population for the future. The RBC, FDL Ceded Territory Committee
and Resource Management staff will continue evaluating available
scientific data in order to determine whether the Band will resume
its moose hunt in 2014.
