  • Did the hare population crash in your area?

    I've been out three times and today I saw my first track. Wolf tracks and coyote also more so than I have in the past. But I have not seen a single hare. Even in areas where they cross the pipeline to access grass. Nothing, nada.....

      Just saw one yesterday around the house, and I saw multiple hares on base, just about everyday I worked this past summer.

        Our peak for hare was about 2 years ago, I still see them and lynx. Actually, I am see the lynx often meaning they are out looking. The coyotes and the lone wolf that have been hanging out for the past several years appear to have moved on to greener pastures. I expect the coyotes to come back.

          There are still a lot around here. They often frighten me, till I realize what it is that is moving. The grouse are worse.
          ALASKA is a "HARD COUNTRY for OLDMEN". (But if you live it wide'ass open, it is a delightful place to finally just sit-back and savor those memories while sipping Tequila).

            Do you mean the grouse scare you more or the grouse population is down worse than the hares?

              I mean......"Anything" that moves frightens me......until I figure out what it is and/or what it is "not".

                  I imagine that with you starting to loose your vision, that could get interesting. I have a black spot in my left eye out on the edge that gets me every once in a while.

                    Hares have crashed up here, north of the Alaska range. We saw lots of lynx around town last year, a tell-tale sign that hares are crashing. This year, we're seeing a whole lot fox in Fairbanks, right in the middle of the day. Might be something going on with voles. Don't know.

                        i usually put away 12-18 for the freezer. It looks like this year that it is going to be zero.

                            Last winter I had tracks of a couple individuals heading cross-country up through my hardwoods (not hare territory) and toward the ridge. This is a pretty uncommon occurrence, and i presume they were hungry and looking for new digs.
