2014-2015 Season Outlook:
Rabbit populations are difficult to predict, but are generally good in areas with suitable habitat. Observations of rabbits in areas of suitable habitat suggest that rabbit populations will be good this season (provided adequate habitat is available). Adequate summer rainfall throughout most of the state has provided good vegetation conditions for food and cover resources. Areas with an ample mixture of native grasses, legumes and other broadleaf plants, and low brushy cover typically produce the greatest numbers of rabbits. Given the long reproductive season and high reproductive potential of rabbits, populations can increase rapidly provided habitat is suitable.
