I've been invited on a squirrel hunt in your state the first of March, I live in Nevada. Do I need a hunting license for them? I looked at the Oregon fish and wildlife site and it looks like I don't.
Thanks

That time of the year I'd have to assume squeakers, sage rats or ground squirrels.


whistle pigs (ground squirrels)

I think for ANY hunting in Oregon, you need a liscense.

Unless they're considered pests though?

I've never heard of anyone needing a license to to shoot sage rats over in Eastern Oregon. But, it's still worth looking into.

Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife Hunting Regs

ETA: Check out definitions of protected and non-protected species on page 9, and the western gray squirrel hunt on page 88.

I'm not sure about the legalities of hunting ANY squirrel anytime soon.

Well as I buy one every year I never I never think about it. So, If you are unsure just buy one.

Sage rats can be a blast.
