COTTONTAIL SCARCITY STUDY 
 
You are requested to enter below the number of cottontail rabbits seen 
during your hunting this year and how late you saw young rabbits that have

just left the nest. 
I would like to get as many samples as possible, so if you can remember 
the number seen during pheasant and chicken hunting, include those also.

You may include counts by others if you can vouch for their reliability.

If you are not hunting rabbits, would you hand this to some reliable person

who is? 
Please keep this until your hunting is over for the year and then return

to me. 
Yours sincerely,
