Snowshoe Hare (Lepus americanus)
Management

Hares are popular with hunters and are managed as small game. In most Game Management Units where they are found hares are open to sport hunting year round with no closed season; in other areas the season is closed in summer months, bag limits vary from five per day in some areas to no limit in others. Check the hunting regulations for the area you plan to hunt to learn more.
