    Default Snowshoe hares aka rabbits

    I'm told the snowshoe population has cycle with them absolutely everywhere then scarce for up to 7 years. It has been longer than that since the last bumper crop. Anyone seeing them in abundance ? 8 years ago you almost couldn't walk without stepping on them near Eureka or Donnely dome

    The 7 year cycle is one peak to one valley. Your looking at 14 years from peak to peak.
