Description
Although participation in recreational hunting has been declining in Alberta throughout the mid 1980s and early 1990s, participation in moose hunting appears to have remained stable until about 1990 (Figure 1). The reasons for this comparative stability and the recent decline in participation are largely unkown. However the traditional nature of moose hunting with its provision of a supply of meat for participants may explain in part, its sustained level of participation. Moose hunting is also important in a regional sense in that expenditures made by participants in many communities provide important income and jobs. For these reasons moose hunting may be one of the most highly valued uses of the northern and foothill forest areas in the province. The recent expansion of the forest industry into areas important for moose hunters and the potential impact of the industry on hunting quality and associated values, justifies the incorporation of moose and moose hunting issues in integrated resource management decisions. The authors began an investigation of various methods which could be used to incorporate values such as moose hunting in resource management decisions. Moose hunting in west central Alberta was chosen as the activity to examine. The study was conducted using 1992 hunters with the following objectives: 1. Examine various models which assess the importance of changes in attributes of a moose hunt 2. Determine the potential impacts of forestry on moose hunting 3. Test a method of structured public involvement in resource management decisions.
