Grouse and squirrel opening date

I was making some plans for this weekend when I realized that squirrel doesn't open until the 19th. Is it me or does it seem a little later than usual? How does the PGC determine the date? Thanks.

Re: Grouse and squirrel opening date

The opening dates for small game are based off of the opening day of rifle deer season which is based off of Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is always the 4th Thursday in November and is Nov 28 this year, the latest possible date.

Squirrel and grouse season run for 6 weeks and end on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, which is Nov 30 this year. Thus the start date of October 19, 2013.

Thanks dap. I never heard that before but it make sense. Last year I think squirrel opened on Oct. 13th but Thanksgiving was on the 22nd the earliest it can be.
