The squirrel is just one of several hunting seasons now underway in Missouri.

(Salem) Missouri hunting seasons are starting to open now. Pigeon season was the first to open and archery season for deer and turkey began on Wednesday.

Another fun animal that you can hunt right now is the squirrel.

Dent County Conservation Officer Jason Midyett says squirrels abound, but don’t be greedy like these outsiders who will now pay a hefty fine for their gluttony.

Missouri hunters may hunt the eastern gray squirrel or the fox squirrel.

The daily limit is 10 and the possession limit is 20.

Squirrel season runs through February 15.

Another fun season also kicked off on Wednesday and that is concert season for non-game fish in Ozark streams and lakes.

The concert season runs through January 31.
