    Hey DRSLYR - I can answer for Bango Skank because from an earlier post of his it's clear he lives in Washington. Washington does not have a season on tree squirrels, and I think the only tree squirrel they have there in any numbers is the pine squirrel (also called, at least in the Pacific Northwest, the Douglas squirrel or the Chickaree). Like you in Missouri, I have both grays and foxes here in Ohio, and shoot them both. Where I live there are no pine squirrels, but I see them regularly in the higher elevations of West Virginia while I'm trout fishing. As a matter of fact, where I trout fish in the WV mountains, ALL I see are pineys - never a fox or a gray. There are lots of foxes and grays in WV, but at lower elevations. I would love to live in Washington. I would miss my squirrel hunting. If I DID live there, and Washington opened a season and all there was to hunt were pine squirrels, I'd pass. They are even smaller than a gray, after all.

    Western washington puget sound area has grey squirrels. The common suburban type, the eastern grey squirrel, is non native and can be hunted. Theyre also the biggest tree squirrels in the state. I live in the northeast part of the state, lots of red squirrels here. Obnoxious little *******s. "Oh hey, youre in a tree stand? Cool, im going to get in the next tree over and scream at you non stop for 2 hours"

    WOW!! Where do you live? We have fox and gray squirrels here in Missouri. I've been hunting them since I was 9 years old.

    Washington. We do have OTC whitetail, blacktail, mule deer, rocky mtn elk, roosevelt elk, black bear, cougar, bobcat, coyote, turkey etc etc, so theres plenty of types of critters to hunt. Unfortunately the states game management is absolutely atrocious. Ungulates are all doing terribly, but predators are through the roof. Honestly id say our black bear hunting is fantastic, if thats your thing. No baiting or hounds, so were crawling with bears, so if you like spot and stalk or calling black bears, its a fantastic state to hunt. Aug 1st - nov 15th statewide, 2 bear limit. Plus special permit spring hunts that a guy can draw every 3-5 years. Its the only thing id recommend an out of state hunter to travel to washington for. Its really the best thing we got going. They got a bit more meat than a squirrel too.

    Hey Bango - thanks for the further clarification. I knew gray squirrels were not native to Washington, but didn't know you had some anyway as an invasive species, so to speak. The grays are a game animal to me, but I know how you feel about the pine squirrels (same way I do). They are bothersome rascals!
