Hunters’ Self-Monitoring in the Faroe Islands

In the Faroe Islands, hare hunting in the outfield landscapes has a significant cultural value. Since 2012, the University of the Faroe Islands has organized hunters’ self-monitoring of shot mountain hare (Lepus timidus). The data are available in Faroese in a web-based database. The data is organized into 481 independent outfields, which the Faroe Islands comprise. The data set can enable a better understanding of hare population dynamics, including management decisions on hare hunting.
