WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Hunting season has arrived in Indiana as Friday marks the opening of squirrel hunting season.

Indiana is known to have an abundant squirrel population. The Department of Natural Resources said squirrel season can be an opportunity to introduce beginners to hunting. The Division of Fish & Wildlife also provides beginner squirrel hunting workshops.

The squirrel season opens Friday, Aug. 15 and runs through Jan. 31. DNR officials said hunters may harvest both gray and fox squirrels and can harvest up to five squirrels per day.

In order to hunt, an annual hunting license is required. To purchase a hunting license, click here.
