Nice study but the global warming thing is getting blamed on a lot these days. Glad someone actually did a real stuff though. I would like to see PA and NY do a combined study and see why just three hours away the hare are doing just fine. I am going to bet almost everything has to do with habitat or lack of it. It can't be predators because they have the same yotes, fox, hawks and owls that we do.

Ya well I only shoot hare sitting in trees!

There is a lot of interesting stuff on that site. I would like to read the findings of the study once it is complete. I liked the idea of checking the kill sites to see what the cover consisted of.

I thought it was cool that they noticed a mismatched hare will flee sooner than a matched hare.

Also, did you read all the blog? The hare are adapting to the smaller amount of snowfall, so some are starting their molt earlier due to lack of snow. That's pretty impressive.
