    My point is that habitat did not exist except through fire until good old farmers cleared the land.

    hunte[QUOTE=Ontariofarmer;1105644]The cash crops do feed a lot of deer and turkeys and coons. Wood lots are still cut. But you are correct fences have disappeared
    If Ontario was all woodlot like in 1750 the deer numbers would be much lower.

    Cash crop lands are good for those hunters who enjoy deer and turkey hunting , but for guys like me who grew up small game hunting not so good. I have also noticed the lack of deer sign in areas that I hunt that went from beautiful fields divided by fence rows into wide open fields. Would explain the why the Jack population in Ontario has been restricted to those properties that have some form of cover.

    Jack rabbits are not native to Ontario : "It's hard to believe that the European hare was not always a part of our native fauna.
    Even harder to accept is the fact that all the multitudes of these jacks seen in Ontario over the past 80-some years are the results of nine imports. But this is indeed true. The story, though, really begins in Brantford.
    In 1912, at the Bow Park Farm, an island in the Grand River, the manager, a German immigrant, brought in several young European hares from Danzig.
    Like many old country people at that time, he probably longed for some of the old familiar ties with his original homeland.
    Whether this was behind his thinking or if he had ideas on marketing the animals, no one really knows.
    At any rate, hares being hares and long noted for their incredible wildness, his new stock grew and became so hard to handle he finally gave them the run of the property.

    Jack rabbits are an invasive species released 110 years ago.

    Deer have tons of feed in Southern Ontario. Coyotes and hunters and cars keep the numbers down

    I am sure a lack of fence rows hurts the jacks. Also the rebound in hawks and eagles and coyote numbers must hurt them too

    I wish we had a place like Hullet close by our neck of the woods. I’d support that big time !!
