Moose Feed and Attractant
by Jim Clement
I have a land in northern Ontario, near Nakina, and I was wondering what kind of food could I put out in order to attract moose? If it helps, the land consists of a lot of 4-5 year old new growth, a couple lakes and thick bush.
On my land in south Ontario I use apples and corn to bring in deer and it works like magic. What food could present similar results for moose in northern Ontario?
Thanks for the question Jim.
I don't know of any specific moose feed and attractant types such as apples, corn etc. that would work well for moose. You may want to try some of the grains such as wheat or rye, I've heard some farmers have had problems with moose eat from the fields. Partially because moose are not typically found in larger numbers such as deer or elk, I think it will be a bit of hit and miss to use food attractants. Although if there are moose in the immediate area food may help to bring them around.
Another thing to do is to place mineral licks in the areas you want to attract moose. Leave these out year round.
There is a similar question with some suggestions on the moose attractant suggestion page.
