An inexpensive yet exciting hunting season has begun in Iowa today.
Guthrie County Department of Natural Resources Conservation Officer Jeremy King says the squirrel and rabbit hunt begins on September 3. He says the popularity of hunting both animals has waned, but says there is a great opportunity for people to practice their marksmanship.
“I would dare anyone to go out there and try to shoot a limit of squirrels. And then there are many good recipes and many good ways to cook. Squirrel. I grew up cutting my teeth, learning to hunt squirrels. And it’s a great way for new hunters to hone some wood-handling skills and get out in the woods and enjoy it.”
The limit for rabbits caught by a hunter is 10 and the limit for squirrels is six.
