  • 2001-2002 Illinois Hunter Harvest Report


  • A random sample of 3,000 hunters was selected from the purchasers of 2001 Illinois Habitat Stamps and resident hunting licenses. The sample was evenly divided between each sample frame (habitat stamps and hunting license). Of the sample of 3,000 hunters, 2,902 questionnaires were deliverable. We received 1,906 (66%) questionnaires, 1,883 of which were usable. License sales increased 2.1% from 2000 (290,000) to the 2001 season (296,000). From 2000-2001 to 2001-2002, harvests increased for 4 game animal categories (woodcock, gray squirrel, raccoon, and coyote), decreased for 8 game animal categories (rabbit, quail, pheasant, dove, gray partridge, fox squirrel, red fox, and opossum), and did not change for 1 category (gray fox). Activities of hunters and types of land hunted were profiled, as were attitudes toward hunting programs and general information about hunters.
