Did you know that Moose was a delicacy for various indigenous tribes like the Mi’kmaq and Cree? They also used the oil and grease from the bones for medicinal purposes.
Many hunters framed moose heads to admire the animal and their kill. However, this likely does not sit well with organizations like PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals).
Moose survival is a big concern in many jurisdictions. I did a random search and found out that Ontario has more moose hunters than Moose. I reference Ontario because the Moose is Ontario’s provincial coat of arms. The local government believes that many factors affect moose survival or cause reproductive harm.
While birth defect data is limited, the higher temperatures that the Province and North America have experienced in recent years have impacted moose feeding. Higher temperatures have lowered fat reserves that Moose need for the winter. Ultimately, this means the poorer quality or inadequate milk quantities for calves. So while reproductive stress isn’t evident, there is a greater likelihood of death since calvers grow with a poor body condition for winter weather.
For example, they have concluded that climate change, habitat, hunting, disease, bears, and wolves affect survival. As of November 2021 for Ontario, there are 91,000 provincially licensed moose hunters and 78,000 mooses in areas where hunting is allowed. An additional 13,2000 moose live in the regions that do not allow hunting. Ontario’s analysis is a rather interesting read, and you can read more on this government page.
The Good News
The good news is that you don’t have to kill or use a real moose to give your home a rustic, traditional feel, and it is a great way to enjoy and live without guilt. Many creators, both in arts and crafts, found on Etsy and more specialized art sites, produce decorative moose kitchen decor items. In recent years, I’ve seen more homes with moose decor, be it the dining room or kitchen.
Whether it is seasonal or elemental, such as having a log cabin home in the country, people seek unique comforts for their home, whether it’s a cute moose salt and pepper shaker or moose silhouette wall decor.

Moose Home Decor Pieces for Every Part of Your Home
Moose décor is part of rustic home interior design. As discussed earlier, Moose is often regarded as the symbol of a genuine hunting spirit that hunters take pride in by displaying their kill in their cabin kitchen or living room next to every other moose art piece they own.
Today, however, even non-hunters can use moose decorations to give their home a natural feel.
Some mothers get creative during Christmas and Halloween and make special treats (Moose-shaped sweets) for the kitchen and family entertainment room. Yum yum.
Here are some other great ideas.
