Hunting Other Wildlife

Guest Author - MaryBeth Crabb


When you think of hunting animals, visions of large Elk, Moose or Deer probably dance in your head. Maybe you think of a fanciful safari chasing a Lion or Elephant. Or maybe you have visions of a bird filled sky. Have you ever thought of the multitude of other wildlife game animals that there are out there? Some it is true are hunted specifically as a management decision to control numbers and the spread of disease. But others like amphibians such as bullfrogs and squirrel are hunted not only as a management decision, but are a tasty treat and are hunted as a seasonal delicacy.

This article will discuss other wildlife available for hunts. Because I live in Kansas, I will keep the wildlife specific to Kansas. To check what other wildlife is available to hunt in your state, contact your Wildlife and Parks Department or your state hunting regulation booklet or website.

The other wildlife category season in Kansas is year round. And except for a few specific species, there is no daily bag limit or possession limit. A Kansas hunting license is required for anyone in possession of these wildlife species, but there are no special hunting tags that need to be purchased.

There are 13 classes of animal considered other wildlife and available for hunt. These include: Amphibians like frogs and turtles, Armadillo, Feral Pigeon, Gopher, Ground Squirrel, Invertebrates like snakes and mussels , Kangaroo Rat, mole, porcupine, Prairie Dog, Reptiles, Woodchuck and Wood Rat.

There are many types of equipment that can be used to take any of the above wild game. Some of the equipment is: bow and arrow, including compound, longbow and recurve , crossbow, dogs, falconry, firearms; the exception here is no fully automatic weapons, glue board, taken by hand, net, pellet and BB gun, slingshot, snare, noose, and traps as well .

For other game animals to hunt in your area, regulations, bag limits and seasons check with your local Wildlife and Parks office or hunting regulations booklet or website.
