Abstract

In summer and early in autumn hunters frequently see many cottontails along roads. When they start to hunt the animals late in autumn, the pursuers express disappointment often at the fewer rabbits, and inquire for causes of the decimation. To obtain better understanding of reasons for autumnal losses investigation was conducted on a 185-acre tract of farm land, Decatur County, Iowa, from July 28 to December 31, 1952. Particularly the losses and causative agents during September and the three following months will be reported.
