    Does anyone have a readers digest summary of the proposed changes?

    The new changes will take effect in 2021. From what I’m told, 2020 pretty much stays as is.

    I see that some additional units will have calf tags next season.

    After 2020 we go to a tag of a life time and no large group allocations.
    I am baffled by a system that would give a tag to one person when the demand for most tags is increasing and the number of tags are dropping?

    You can still party hunt, you will just be added to the individuals tag in some way.

    I don't see the downside of the new system for groups. Like mentioned above you can still party hunt. For a guy like me that only has 3 or 4 guys to camp, at least there is a chance for me to get a moose tag sometime in my life and they are all just given to groups of a dozen or more guys.

    Glad to see the preference point system being implemented. It's been more than 20 years since I raised this with the MNR and asked them to look into it's use in the western states where there are many high-tag-demand areas. It's too bad that MNR takes a couple of decades to react to anything.

    2 decades of decreasing moose populations too, and to the verge of not being able to bring it back.

    I believe that after the tag lottery is implemented,the group system will no longer exist.
    When I was younger,I blew half a fortune on whisky and wild women. The rest I just wasted.

    You won’t be added to a tag. Party hunting will remain, with some changes to group size and distances party members need to be from the tag holder. You will also be able to buy a licence with no tag at a reduced rate, to allow party hunting. There will be no group allocation.
