    A while back i had found a pdf or a online pamphlet that list different species of squirrels. I seemed to remember it being on the ODFW website. It showed what species had a season (western greys), what ones were open all year, basically a few non natives, and then the protected species not open for hunting. I can seem to find that form online anymore and it seems i didn't save a copy. Can anyone tell me a few of the non natives so that i can take a few reference pictures. Or even better provide the link to that pamphlet if you know what im talking about.

    Also the page im thinking of isn't from the handbook, it was a page with columns and pictures of different species.

    Maybe this page too then.

    If it isn't a game mammal or protected, it should be unprotected. Squirrels are rodents so protected species (unless threatened or endangered) can be hunted on private property with permission.
