(WANE)  The 2014-2015 fall squirrel hunting season is underway in Indiana and runs through January 31.

According to the Indiana Department of Natural Resources (DNR), hunters may harvest both gray and fox squirrels, and can harvest up to five squirrels per day.

In order to hunt squirrels, Indiana residents must purchase the annual hunting license for $17 ($7 youth consolidated license), and nonresidents must purchase the $80 annual hunting license or the $31 five-day hunting license ($17 annual youth hunting).

The DNR Division of Fish & Wildlife has begun providing beginner squirrel hunting workshops as part of its “Hunt, Fish, Eat” program. This fall’s workshop will be at J. E. Roush Fish & Wildlife Area on Saturday, Sept. 27. For registration information on this workshop, see http://bit.ly/1rdjS3b.
To purchase a hunting license, go to IndianaOutdoor.IN.gov.
