Lots of great shooting.  You should check out all of Eric’s work at Varminter.com.  He’s a great guy, loves this sport and it shows in all his work.

Ground Squirrel Hunting – Season Usually Open

Wednesday, October 20th, 2010

Ground Squirrel Hunting – Seasons Are Normally Open For Many Species

Check with your game and parks or wildlife resources departments in your state and your area.  In many states, the season for ground squirrels and many other “pest” species never closes.  So, no matter what time of year it is, you can almost always go out and find something to hunt.  It’s good for the soul.  It keeps you sane.

For example, here’s a list of species in Wisconsin that never closes:

Species with Year-round Hunting Seasons

The following small game species may be taken year-round with any valid hunting license* (except within state park and recreation areas from April 1 to September 14):

  • opossum
  • porcupine
  • red squirrel
  • skunk
  • thirteen-lined ground squirrel
  • woodchuck
  • weasel

The following species may be taken with a firearm year-round with any valid hunting license (except within state park and recreation areas from April 1 to September 14):

  • English (house) sparrow
  • European starling
  • feral pigeon (rock dove)

*No license is required for a resident, resident’s spouse or resident’s children to hunt small game on the enclosed farmlands where they live.
OK?  Now go out and squeeze a few off and keep those shot groups close.
