The 2011 hunting season is bringing many changes. Bag limits for deer are more conservative and many seasons come in earlier. Hopefully, this counteracts the downward spiral of last year’s harvest totals.

Squirrel season opens Sept. 10. Many other states have earlier squirrel opening. Hunters are questioning the opening due to warbles in squirrels. It is my understanding that warbles are a skin disease and squirrels containing warbles can still be consumed. I, like many others, do not want to consume a squirrel with warbles.

Archery season for deer opens Oct. 1, but bear archery season still comes in on Oct. 15. The early archery and muzzleloader seasons are not for Calhoun, which has a one doe with a rifle limit this year.

Calhoun’s bear season runs from Dec. 5-31, without the use of dogs. Calhoun has had roughly 10 bears taken within the last decade.

I am looking forward to the best hunting season in years. Please get out and enjoy God’s bounty this fall. If possible, take a child hunting.
