Description: Rates at which Eastern fox squirrels (Sciurus niger) are exploited in areas open to public hunting may be useful guides for designing fall hunting seasons that are biologically defensible. However, there is a question whether the harvest of fox squirrels by public hunting will even occasionally be great enough to challenge the limit allowed by the best designed biologically sound hunting season. There seems to be a population level of squirrels-as yet undefined-that strongly resists further exploitation of its members by hunting, thereby preventing overexploitation.
