Abstract
This study, concerned with evaluation of Cottontail Rabbit

management techniques, was conducted at Camp Pickett, Virginia, a

47,000-acre deactivated military reservation. This public hunting area

is managed cooperatively by the U. S. Second Army and the Virginia

Commission of Game and Inland Fisheries.

Cottontail Rabbit populatien fluctuations were measured by roadside

counts during the summer menths. It was found that a precipitous

drop in the rabbit population occurred in mid—August. The suspected

etiology of this population drop was disease, although no research

data were collected to substantiate this theory.
