JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) invites the public to “go nuts” about the squirrel hunting season at their beginner squirrel hunting event on Sept. 29 from 6-7 p.m. at Runge Nature Center in Jefferson City. Participants will learn how to identify common squirrels, squirrel habits and habitats, hunting regulations and safety strategies, and equipment and game care.

Squirrel hunting season kicked off May 28 and runs until Feb. 15, 2023. Squirrel hunting is a great way to enjoy time in the woods, and there is not a lot of equipment needed to hunt squirrels. Attend this event to increase your success in the field.
