2015 - 2016 Rabbit Hunting
October 17, 2015 - February 28, 2016;
Daily Bag Limit: 8 rabbits (regardless of species).
2015 - 2016 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.
