Moose In New York

Hunting Regulations Icon New York Hunting

Moose are protected in New York and cannot be hunted. DEC and its research partners are currently conducting a multi-year research project to obtain information on the status of New York State’s moose population, moose health, and the factors that influence moose survival and reproductive rates. The goal of the moose study is to gather data that will be used to create a moose management plan for New York State. See www.dec.ny.gov/animals/6964 for more information.
