Rabbit Hunting Season

2015 - 2016 Rabbit Hunting Season:

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). Until late summer, 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. Locally, rabbit numbers will likely vary considerably as they often do given the cyclic nature of populations.
