Introduced arctic fox eradication at Rat Island, Aleutian Islands, Alaska, summer 1984

Mechanical means similar to those employed on Amata Island during the summer of 1983 were used to attempt eradication of fox on Rat Island. These labor intensive methods involved stationing two personnel at an abandoned cabin on Rat Island in late May 1984. Additional emphasis was placed on calling fox this year. It should also be, noted that the use of M-44 coyote getters was somewhat limited and that no other poison baits were used. Contained in the appendix are excerpts from Kim Hanson's field diary which describe in detail the eradication methods employed on Rat Island. A map indicating the various locations referred to in the diary excerpts is also contained in the appendix.
