Abstract

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources (IA DNR) has collected annual harvest records for furbearer species since 1930. Historically, these data have been used to monitor population trends and served as an indicator of trapping and hunting effort for each species. However, the relative proportion of species harvested each year is not always an accurate indicator of annual fluctuations in species abundance. In 2018, the Iowa Furharvester Diary Survey was initiated to specifically collect information on furharvester trapping and hunting effort separate from harvest records.
