    I'm sure the population would climb some, for sure. Until vehicular traffic and increased predators caught up and took numbers down.

    The bigger questions would be, what would happen if we didn't kill calves? Or! What would happen to the population if bear and wolf numbers were put back in check?

    How is it one careless cigarette can cause a forest fire, but it takes a whole box of matches to light a campfire?

    Without hunting,animal populations will increase in the short term,but,drop substantially shortly after the initial surge through habitat over feeding,heavier predation and more importantly,without conservation techniques employed by the hunting industry through funding of license and permit sales attached to it. From decades of experience,we know without a shred of doubt that government priorities will never include funding for conservation,save lip service and smoke and mirrors with no real commitment. That's why lobbying efforts are so vitally important to keep governmental feet to the fire because all they understand is money and votes,both of which go hand-in-hand.
    Remember May 1,2020 when they say "We don't want your hunting guns".
    There's nothing that can screw up an academic's mind faster than being told there's absolutely no logical reason for the alphabet to be in order.

    well if NOBODY hunted moose - including unregulated hunters, the population would increase dramatically in time until a balance is struck between predators and food available.

    My opinion is that hunting is the number 1 cause of decline in populations, especially by unregulated hunters who don't have to follow any harvest quota rules or other hunting rules.

    Never going to happen sadly.

    Your question is too broad, in the far north there would not be much change, in areas close to highly populated areas the population would go up and match the carrying capacity of the terrain, which would vary depending on the area. You would see moose move further into southern Ontario and feast on the farmers fields.

    You are someway Right .
    The Moose population would climb up to certain level ... also the predators number would increase , and the predators hunting the weakest the calfs ... So Bears... Wolfs... Cougars... will manage the Moose population
    ( forget the MNR forget the First nation forget the Calf hunting hunters .. for a moment ...)
    So the Moose population will be managed natural way , will go up will go down ... NATURALLY...
    So if we want to help The Moose population Let start hunting the predators ,
    lets go hunting Bears Wolfs , so if wolfs number will go down the moose population will go up .
    And let stop this nonsense , blaming ...
    let do something useful , lets hunting predators what is not easy ...
    but that is hunting to , and require plenty of skill and dedication ...

    Remember the Buffalo story. We can bring the Moose back if we try.

    The Bison: from 30 million to 325 (1884) to 500,000 (today)!!!
