Hello;
Kinda new here even though I joined forum a while back. Seems I read on forum that jack rabbit population was down in AZ.and NV.
Is this still the case or is population on the rise?
Any response much appreciated.
Thank you

I'm not sure you can legally shoot Jack Rabbits in Wa state.

Down around Crane Oregon, I've never seen so many Jack Rabbits...

I didn't say they did but seeing that the OP is also from Washington State is why I said that.

Upper Midwest there is a rabbit virus, think it is still in domestic rabbits. Fewer garden rabbits this year though.

Many years ago, as a youngster, our family went to panhandle of Oklahoma to work the wheat harvest. After we came in and had our bath and supper we would take off in the old Chevy grain truck and drive over the just cut fields and shoot jack rabbits. Best count was 96 in one evening and with an old Remington 513T. Fun times, but haven't been there since 1958.

It was way before my time but they used to be thick in nebraska also. Dad talked about the 50 cent bounty and guys getting together to spotlight them at night.

I really couldn't say what killed them off, I doubt it was the shooting, but they're pretty scarce now. I did see one road killed a year or so ago.

Were they paying a bounty on rabbit ears at that time? My Grandad had told me about when KS (he was 8 miles from OK) was paying crazy prices for rabbit ears.

Okay, so living here in Nevada, I have been out about 8 times and have seen Jack Rabbits on a regular basis, but less so in my small opinion. When I hunt at night, I usually always find like one or two in each stand. I suspect there have been more in the past, which I why we are seeing bigger coyotes getting killed but less young coyotes. By that is just my experience.

I was 14 yrs old the first year there, knew nothing of any bounty money. I do remember my uncle saying he would have to make a trip to Guymon for ammo if we continued to go every night.
