Limited hunting

Regarding the Home Forum column "Respect the Moose Who Comes to Call," Aug. 7: I have spent some of my 50 years hanging around deep forests, and I have seen a lot of moose. Deep forests are what moose need, and the decline of this species in the New England woods has more to do with agriculture and forestry practices than with managed hunting.

How many moose do we really want, anyway? More than before, you can bet. But there must be a limit, and I say the great state of Maine is on the right track with ecologically sound limited-entry hunting. Kent Saltonstall, Woodway, Wash.
