Is Minnesota’s Moose Population Declining?

I can honestly say I've only witnessed a live moose in the wild once in my life.  It was just outside of Remer, MN on our way back from Walker.  He was standing in the ditch near the road lazily chewing his cud not really caring that we had stopped to gawk at him.  I guess we were gawking because you just don't see that animal out in their natural habitat very often.

Minnesota Snowmobile Trails Open; Enthusiasts Can Check Trail Conditions Here

I use to be so scared of our snowmobile.  I would play in the snow at age 4 while my dad and sister would ride the Scorpion around the yard, running up on the porch shaking my head NO when they would stop and ask me if I wanted to ride.  Then, I got the guts to sit on it one day and dad took off.  My first ride on a snowmobile was a surprise, but honestly, you couldn't get me off the dang thing after that.
