  • 2002-2003 Illinois Hunter Harvest Report


  • A random sample of 3,000 hunters was selected from the 2002 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, 2,907 questionnaires were deliverable. We received 1,852 (64%) returned questionnaires, 1,832 of which were usable. License sales decreased 2.4% from 2001 (296,000) to the 2002 season (289,000). From 2001-2002 seasons to 2002-2003 seasons, harvests for 3 game species increased (gray squirrel, red fox, and opossum), decreased for 8 species (rabbit, quail, pheasant, gray partridge, woodcock, fox squirrel, raccoon, and coyote), did not change for 1 species (dove), and could not be calculated for 1 category (gray fox). Use of the internet by hunters was profiled, as were attitudes toward wildlife and wildlife management, and general information about hunters.
