Are you certain about this? As I understood it, it is July 1st to the last Sunday in January. So January 31st was true for last season, but won't be for this season. It will be Jan. 30th. Correct on the jacks though.

From last year's regs: The general season shall open on July 1 extending through the last Sunday in January

EDIT: So I'm a slower typist than 5shot...

Oh, and......rabbit season!

See the Big Game Hunting Digest for season summaries.

So do I, but then again, it's a golf course, and no matter how much I beg, they won't let me shoot there.

Ask if you can use a pellet gun during off-hours. They may feel differently when you mention a pellet gun or BB gun and not a "real" gun

The manager tried to get approval for a golf tournament / ground squirrel shoot with pellet guns, but the suggestion was shot down from above. I'd have paid good money to get in on that!
