Where to hunt Hare
Different varieties of this rodent can be found almost all over the world. They tend to be more tolerant to low temperatures than rabbits, and their large ears work great for thermal regulation in the hottest climates. Where hares never existed, like in New Zealand, they were introduced by humans, but wherever you find them, you will find them an object of an interesting small game hunt.
Hares are often included in a package along with other animals, like Rusa deer in Madagascar, hogs in New Zealand, and roe deer in Russia, to name just a few. In such a case the more expensive animals determine the price. True and affordable small game hunting opportunities start at about $200-$300 a hunter a day, while packages may go way beyond this.
When to hunt Hare?
Exotic locations, such as Mauritius, New Zealand and South Africa, offer hare hunting all year round. In the native range the hare season usually starts at September or October, and may run until January or February. The best time for hunting is in most cases on the break of autumn and winter, when the hares are in prime condition (in winter coat and with a lot of fat stored for winter), while bare woods and/or light snow make finding them easier.

Humans have invented many ways to hunt this tasty and quickly multiplying animal. Before firearms were invented, hares were taken by coursing with sight hounds, sometimes accompanied by scent hounds to drive the animals into the open. You can even find such hunts on BookYourHunt.com. Today hares are mostly hunted with a shotgun or small bore rifle. The hunt can be over scent hounds, by tracking through the snow, stalking, driving, or simply walking them up without dogs.
Why hunt Hare? All hunts (55)
A hare may have up to four litters a year, and large numbers of them can be very irritating to farmers. Add to this a couple of pounds of good eating, and a light if not very durable fur, and you can easily see why farmers and landowners of all lands pursued hares with zeal. Hares are what many a young hunter in the old days honed their skills on before graduating to big game; tracking through the snow in particular is invaluable as a tool for learning the art of finding animals by their spoor. Few people would travel long distance solely for the sake of a hare hunt, but if you find yourself in an area where they abound, don’t deny yourself the pleasure of diversifying your hunting experience and bagging a few hares of the local variety.
