Occurs in dry grassland or in patches of grass and other herbaceous plants within low open sagebrush. Prefers deep, loose soil, which it needs for digging burrows. The greater part of its current range is uncultivated steppe in Walla Walla, Franklin, Adams, Lincoln, and Grant Counties.
Steppe zones within its range were core with good habitat being in non-forested and pasture lands.
