Title:  

2000-2001 Illinois Hunter Harvest Report

 
 Volume/Number:    
 Time Period Covered:    
 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:    
 Time Period Covered:    
 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.

 Volume/Number:  2002  
 Time Period Covered:    
 Issuing Agency:  Natural History SurveyHuman Dimensions Research Program 
 Description:  Harvest of light geese during the 2002 Illinois Conservation Action was estimated at 17,875 geese, a decrease or 18,955 geese from the 2001 harvest of 36,830. Participation increased to 5,107 hunters during 2002 compared to 4,665 hunters during 2001. Hunters spent an estimated 31,204 days afield during 2002, a decrease of 1,430 from the 32,634 days hunted during 2001.

As with hunters responding to the 2001 survey, hunters who did not participate in the conservation action reported no geese in the area and no place to hunt as well as not interested as the main reasons they did not hunt light geese.
