Any reason why the problem can be taken care of without the state's help?

Youd get less time in prison for shooting a Homo Sapien.

That's a good question! Moose numbers might quit dropping if one of the big problems was solved. We can't do much about wolves but ticks are not an endangered specie. It seems I heard that dogs treated with Ivermectin would become tick free. I wonder if moose could be darted with Ivermectin?

Absolutely ivomec will work on moose only gray area is a 28 day withdrawal on the meat for consumption but if they did it post hunting season not an issue

Next, I'm wondering why volunteers couldn't be trained and allowed to dart moose at a good time of the year for doing that?

Volunteers could be utilized however before it can get under way the wdfw tick biologist would probably have to conduct a ten year study to determine if the ivomec humanly killed the tick or if the tick suffered then there would be the impact to the other native plant life and red toed tree frogs and since where running out of carbou and other snacks in the northeast corner we would have to  enroll the wolf population into the meals on wheels program to make sure they had a healthy free and reduced lunch over the course of the 28 day withdrawal period on the meat before they could start eating moose again if I had to guess 20 years from now when were down to less moose then caribou they will have an ah ha moment and come up with a brilliant idea after a liberating round table discussion that they now think we should control ticks and predators to save the few moose we have left for the wilderness watchers who are also getting meals on wheels and contribute nothing to the resource

We use ivermectin as a wormer.

Is it effective against ticks? 
:fire.:

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

Ya, they suck poisoned blood and drop off in a few days.  Ticks don't have a blood brain barrier like mammals do, ivomec doesn't penetrate that blood brain barrier very well so mammals are safer with it their system. 

Some mammals have a sensitivity (think allergy) to it so they get less of a dose.  Pigs can nearly drink the stuff.
