Abstract

We examined body condition of 40 moose (Alces alces) calves shot in winter in southeastern Norway in 1984-85. Kidney fat was low both years. Femur fat was lowest in the year that winter weather was most severe. No relationship between body condition and body weight was found during the severe winter; the relationship was significant during the moderate winter.
