David Oolooyuk, Nunavut Wildlife Officer
in Rankin Inlet, recalled in 2004 periods when his people
depended on Arctic hares (Lepus arcticus)
to feed the community because caribou and seals were scarce: "I
know rabbit, a lot. They're part of a traditional life for
us, like, food. And, like right now it's almost five o'clock...
'Cause I hunt them a lot, back in those days, I know what
time they go out feeding -- in the afternoon, that's the
time to go hunt. So... that's all I know I think. So... Hard
to catch them. Like, yes you lucky sometime you catch them
in the morning. It's easy to see in the afternoon, like between
three and six. 'Cause that's the feeding time for them, eh?
So, that's what I know".
