    Looked like a very awesome day out..Got 14 between me and the girlfriend back in Oct.. April is pretty much my cut off date for hunting rabbits tho. Last year i hunted late and opened one up and it was carrying babies..So i called it a day,,,,Seemed counter productive to the following years crop..

    Default hares in heet

    I believe that rabbits/hares come into heet multiple times a year and does can start as early at 5-9 months! I'm not certain, but I think they have babies all the time; the gestation period is about a month.....prolific little buggers! No real time to guess when they'll be pregnant.

    I'd feel bad about busting open a pregnant doe as well....

    Could be they do carry a few times during the year. Just in all the rabbits ive shot,probably over 150 or so, Ive never seen a pregnant one, except the one I shot in early April last year. But maybe I missed it when i was cleaning them..Just gave me a bad feeling seeing that, so after cleaning that one I called it a day.

    From ADF&G WILDLIFE NOTEBOOK SERIES


    "Snowshoe hares breed at about 1 year of age and have two to three litters per year. The gestation period is 36 to 37 days. First litters are born around the middle of May in Interior Alaska and average about four leverets (young hares). The second litter, in years of increasing abundance, often averages six young, and occasionally there is a third litter. Females breed immediately after the birth of a litter. " TOUGH CRITTERS!
