In North America, the moose range includes almost all of Canada, most of Alaska, northern New England and upstate New York, the upper Rocky Mountains, northeastern Minnesota, Michigan's Upper Peninsula, and Isle Royale in Lake Superior. Within this massive range, the most diverse range of subspecies exist, containing habitat for four of the six subspecies. In western portions of the continent, moose populations extend well north into Canada (British Columbia and Alberta) and more isolated groups have been verified as far south as the mountains of Utah and Colorado and as far west as the Blue Mountains of Oregon. In 1978, a few breeding pairs were reintroduced in western Colorado, and the state's moose population is now more than 1,000.
In Northeastern North America, the Eastern moose's historical range extended from well into Quebec, the Maritimes, and Eastern Ontario south to include all of New England finally ending in the very northeastern tip of Pennsylvania in the west, cutting off somewhere near the mouth of the Hudson River in the east. Within the eastern U.S. it has up until recently been extirpated for up to a hundred fifty years or more, due to colonial era overhunting and destruction of its habitat. Within the last thirty-five years, however, this has changed, predicated on the regrowth of plentiful food sources, abandonment of farmland, better land management, and natural dispersal from the Canadian Maritimes and Quebec.
And don't forget, we have a great selection in Moose Head animal mounts.
South of the Canadian border Maine has the lion's share of the population with a current headcount of about 30,000 moose and dispersals from Maine over the years have resulted in healthy populations each in Vermont and New Hampshire, particularly in the mountains and . In turn dispersals from northern New England have resulted in a growing population of roughly 1,000 moose in Massachusetts (where it has been absent since the early 1700s) plus reports of new dispersals to New York, Rhode Island, and Connecticut.
Moose were successfully introduced on Newfoundland in 1904 where they are now the dominant ungulate, and somewhat less successfully on Anticosti Island in the Gulf of St. Lawrence. Ten moose were introduced in Fiordland, New Zealand, in 1910. At one time this population was thought to have died off, but sightings have been reported, and in fact moose hair samples were found by a New Zealand scientist in 2002.
