Rabbit Hunting Trends

The MDWFP has conducted random, statewide surveys of hunting license holders almost yearly since the early 1980s (with some periodic surveys prior to that). The data below are from these surveys conducted since the 1980 - 1981 hunting seasons.

 

Figure 1. Trends in rabbit harvest estimated from surveys of licensed, resident hunters.


Figure 2. Trends in rabbit harvest estimated from surveys of licensed, resident and non-resident hunters. Data for non-resident hunters were not available prior to the 1994 - 1995 season.
