2000-2001 Illinois Hunter Harvest Report

 
 Volume/Number:    
 Issuing Agency:  Natural History SurveyHuman Dimensions Research Program 
 Description:  A random sample of 3,000 hunters was selected from the 2000 Illinois Habitat Stamp stubs and license sales. The sample was evenly divided between each sample frame (1,500 from each frame). Of the sample of 3,000 hunters, 2,912 questionnaires were deliverable. We received 2,142 (74%) returned questionnaires. License sales declined 1.4% from 1999 (294,000) to the 2000 season (290,000). From 1999-2000 to 2000-2001, harvests increased for 7 game animal categories (rabbit, pheasant, dove, gray partridge, squirrel, red fox, and coyote), decreased for 4 game animal categories (quail, woodcock, raccoon, and opossum), and did not change for 1 category (gray fox). Activities of upland hunters were profiled, as were attitudes toward hunting and general information about hunters.

Title:  

2000-2001 Illinois Trapper Report

 
 Volume/Number:    
 Issuing Agency:  Natural History SurveyHuman Dimensions Research Program 
 Description:  A stratified random sample of 892 persons who purchased a 2000 resident Illinois trapping license was surveyed after the furbearer trapping season. The U.S. Postal Service was successful in reaching 857 of the licensees, 621 (72%) of whom returned usable questionnaires. Trapping license sales declined 9% from 1999 (2,345 licenses) to 2000 (2,126 licenses). Trappers had traps set for an average of 23.4 days during the 2000-2001 season, and they harvested an estimated 96,480 furbearers (down 18% from the 118,326 harvested in 1999-2000). Data are provided for temporal distribution of trapping activities, types of traps used, participation in trapper education programs, and fur hunting by trappers. The opinions of trappers as to changes in furbearer populations and trapping effort are also presented, as is a profile of personal characteristics of trappers.

Title:  

Hunter Perceptions of Chronic Wasting Disease in Illinois

 
 Volume/Number:  2003 June 30 
 Issuing Agency:  Natural History SurveyHuman Dimensions Research Program 
 Description:  A study of 2,683 (79% response) Illinois deer hunters attitudes toward and understanding of Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) in white-tailed deer in Illinois was conducted during spring 2003. Most hunters (96%) were aware of CWD, but fewer could state they were aware of CWD in a particular state, including Illinois (77%). Higher risk ratings were given to West Nile Disease (7%), Lyme Disease (5%), or having a heart attack while hunting (5%) than CWD (3%). Hunters did perceive CWD to be a threat to the Illinois deer herd (33% were very concerned). Most hunters (63%) did not foresee any change in their hunting participation for the 2003 firearm season due to CWD, 15% planned to make sure they were hunting deer in a CWD-free county. A majority of hunters (54%) expressed a degree of uncertainty as to the potential risk of CWD to humans, and 18% felt it could be contracted by eating meat from infected animals. Hunters expressed potential changes in behavior with increased infection rates of CWD in deer in the county where they hunted. Based on the responses to this study, approximately 5% of hunters can be expected to drop out of deer hunting if CWD is found in the county next to or in the county where they hunt.

Results of the 1998-1999 Illinois Waterfowl Hunter Survey

 
 Volume/Number:    
 Issuing Agency:  Natural History SurveyHuman Dimensions Research Program 
 Description:  A random sample of 5,182 waterfowl hunters in Illinois was selected from migratory bird hunters registered for the 1998 federal Harvest Information Program (HIP). Hunters were mailed a self-administered, return mail questionnaire seeking information about hunting activities, harvest, and attitudes toward seasons for both duck and goose hunting. A total of 3,752 (72.4%) hunters responded, of which 2,264 purchased a 1998 Illinois Migratory Waterfowl stamp; 88.7% of these stamp purchasers hunted waterfowl in Illinois in 1998-99. During the 1998-99 season, 50,288 hunters took part in duck and/or goose hunting, spent 795,561 days afield, and harvested 471,072 birds. Duck hunters comprised 83% of the waterfowl hunting population, with 48% hunting ducks exclusively. Goose hunters made up 52% of the population, and 17% hunted geese only. A total of 10,307 hunters harvested 21,270 teal and spent 33,049 days afield. Duck hunters (n=41,755) spent 517,372 days afield and harvested an estimated 386,862 ducks. During the early September Canada goose season an estimated 11,981 hunters hunted 37,322 days and harvested 7,852 geese. During the regular Canada goose season 26,343 hunters spent 202,676 days afield and harvested 43,222 Canada geese. Adult hunters (n=3,343) took 5,142 youths afield during Youth Waterfowl Hunting Day. Hunters in all zones favored the early September Canada goose season. Hunters in the North and Central Zones favored extending statewide the telephone system for monitoring Canada goose harvest, whereas hunters in the South Zone favored leaving the system as it was at the time of the survey. North Zone hunters preferred 11 days for the first segment of the regular goose season, with a 14-day closed interval prior to the second season and a 21 day second season with no days for the second closed period. No opinion was the most frequent response for the second closed period. Central Zone hunters reported No opinion as their most frequent response to the same items. Hunters in the South Zone favored retaining the current (at the time of the survey) opening dates, and most hunters in the North and Central Zones had no opinion. Hunters 2 in all zones favored shorter seasons with higher bag limits over longer seasons with lower bag limits. Hunters preferred September 11 as the opening date for September teal season and Thursday opener/Sunday closure for duck season. Hunters favored dates for 1998 duck season to be used again for the 1999 season.
