Squirrel season is until February 15. There are lots of squirrels in Illinois.
here in southern Illinois we got tons of rabbits, for many of years they was a thing of the past, but they've made a huge comeback, I like that they extend it that way not always hunting in hot weather., I raise training rabbits, heck I don't even shoot many wild ones I like the chase!
