Important Small Game Season Information

Cottontail rabbits, snowshoe hares and squirrels are classified as small game in Wyoming. Among these, cottontail rabbits are the most popular with hunters. A small game license and conservation stamp is required to hunt cottontails, snowshoe hares and squirrels. The season is traditionally September 1 - March 1.

Everything You Need to Know
to Start Your Hunt

Wyoming has three species of cottontails (eastern, desert and mountain) that are hunted, and one (pygmy rabbit) that is protected. Pine or red squirrels are common in Wyoming's mountains but are rarely hunted due to poor table quality. Fox squirrels are often quite abundant within shelterbelts and stands of cottonwood trees along creek and river bottoms. Abert's squirrel is protected and cannot be hunted in Wyoming.
