February is a down time for many hunters, but one often over-looked game species is abundant and active in Kansas -- the squirrel. But the season ends Feb. 28, and time is running out for those who want to hunt this elusive tree-dweller.

Kansas has two species of squirrels -- the fox squirrel and the gray squirrel. Fox squirrels can be found throughout the state just about anywhere trees are abundant.

Fox squirrels are active at midday and spend a good deal of time on the ground. Mature fox squirrels may weigh up to 3 pounds.
