This species requires loose, sandy, deep soils for burrowing and occurs from 150 to 3600 feet elevation. Its numbers increase with the percent of sand in soil and at lower altitudes. Found in variety of habitats with many kinds of sagebrush and bunchgrass. Will not be found in damp or heavy soils.

All non-forested zones are core areas and good habitats included all non-forested cover and all non-irrigated agriculture.
