Moose Population
So how does the Moose population seem to be doing this year, rebounding?

...... the Mello Moose comes to Meredith
There's a new moose in Meredith ..... the Mello Moose ..... a coffee shop-restaurant located on Rt 3 about a couple hundred yards south of the roundabout..... heading toward the Weirs....on the right......heading down the hill .....

This Mello Moose makes it so easy to eat at the Mello Moose ...... is so much easier to purchase a cup of quality coffee and a egg/cheese/ham on a bagel ...... as opposed to hunting a moose and eating moose meat ..... go figure?

I haven't seen recent numbers but I find it hard to believe that they will turn it around quickly. The ticks are getting worse every year and continue farther north as well. They're just slowly sucking the life out of the moose. They are disgusting.

Moose population down
When I read in the paper 2 years ago that the population of Moose in NH/VT/ME was down by about 48% I was totally thunderstruck by the number. So, I called Don Miller, one of the senior biologists (now retired) at NH Fish & Game (and one of our judges for the Rotary Ice Fishing Derby). Don told me that the population has indeed been decimated by ticks. Moose, unlike deer, do not rub themselves against bushes and trees to remove the ticks. The ticks get onto the juvenile moose - and they become so anemic they die. The deer population is down in many areas, but not by these huge numbers. The adult moose can survive the tick onslaught: but the youngsters cannot.
