Saturday, June 1st, is the opening day for the 2019 squirrel hunting season. An event open to all who wish to participate is planned with the support of Riley County Fish & Game Association, Friends of Fancy Creek Range and Friends of Tuttle Creek State Park. Pre-registration is required through Tuttle Creek State Park, 785 539-7941, for this program.
Arrangements are in place to provide a guide, a firearm for use if needed by participant, place to hunt on event day, and a lunch before cleaning and cooking of a squirrel feast in the afternoon.
The goal of our event is to provide support from experienced guides and staff for beginner hunters and also those with an interest in learning to squirrel hunt. A hunting license, or apprentice hunting license is required of those 16 and over. A non-licensed observing participant may accompany the hunting party. This is designed to be a family-oriented event. 1 to 3 hunters will be assigned a guide. The hunters can be from one family, friends or will be placed in a group.
Don't delay, limited spots are open to those with interest. No cost to participants other than any license costs. Participants should plan to bring water and snacks.
