  • Results of the 2005-2006 Illinois Hunter Harvest Survey


  • Annual survey of Illinois resident hunters to determine their activities and harvests in Illinois. Abstract: A random sample of 3,000 potential hunters was selected from the 2005 Illinois Habitat Stamp stubs and license sales. A 7-page questionnaire was successfully mailed to 2,894 of the 3,000 individuals. We received 1,809 returned questionnaires, 1,803 of which were usable, for a 62% response rate. License sales decreased 7% from 300,000 sold for the 2004 season to 280,000 sold for the 2005 season. Comparisons of harvest estimates from 2004-2005 season to 2005-2006 season suggest harvest decreased for 10 game animal categories (rabbit, quail, pheasant, dove, woodcock, fox squirrel, gray squirrel, raccoon, red fox, and gray fox), increased for 2 categories (opossum and coyote), and could not be calculated for 1 category (gray partridge). We examined hunter activities, attitudes, and preferences related to dove hunting, motivations for and participation in hunting in Illinois, and personal characteristics.
