Can you shoot Whistle Pigs without a hunting licence?
A hunting license IS required to hunt or take any wildlife in Idaho, including unprotected and predatory wildlife.
Most ground squirrels are classified as unprotected wildlife and can be hunted by persons holding a valid hunting license. Be aware, there are several species of ground squirrel that are protected.
We recommend you call the regional office near the area you wish to hunt prior to hunting.
