Maine's leading Moose biologist will provide a look into the states moose population.

The Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife will host a live stream event this week that takes an in-depth look at Maine's iconic moose herd. Maine's head Moose Biologist, Lee Kantar, will lead the discussion, scheduled for Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. Topics include how the Department studies the population, winter tick, and the work being done to keep Maine’s moose population healthy and stable for the future.

The discussion will live stream on YouTube in the video above. The session will be recorded and available on YouTube after the stream ends. The department says folks can also learn more by listening to the podcast at or visiting

Hopeful moose hunters may also want to take a listen to Kantar's chat with the guys of the Big Woods Bucks Podcast. The particular episode was released back in July of 2020. While outdated at this point in reference to the 2020 moose hunt, Kantar gives an intriguing look into how biologists study moose.

The Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife is now accepting applications for the 2021 Moose Permit Lottery. You have until, May 13 to apply. Applications are only being accepted online. The moose lottery drawing will be held June 12. A venue has yet to be announced.
