FAIRBANKS — In Sweden, a country that is approximately one-fifth the size of Alaska, hunters kill about 80,000 moose per year, give or take a few thousand.
In Norway, which is slightly smaller than Sweden, the average annual moose harvest is 35,000.
In Alaska, hunters are lucky if they kill 7,000 moose per year.
Regular readers might remember that I wrote a short little post on this back in May. Is the News Miner hitting up blogs for their stories? ;)
