Late Season Squirrel Hunting Tips

This article provides advice on late season squirrel hunting.

As a person who likes to sleep in and is really only able to get up in the predawn hours to go deer hunting, I was glad to learn that squirrel hunting in cold weather is a mid day activity. The reason for this is obvious, it is warmest and sunniest at midday and thus this is when the squirrels are most likely to move. Bright, sunny days seem to be best, even when it is quite cold. Squirrels seem to like to get out and soak in the sunshine when they have the chance. The hunter who hits the woods about 10:30 AM and hunts until about 2:30 PM should be there for the peak squirrel activity in the late season.

When squirrel hunting this late in the year the trees are bare of leaves, allowing a hunter to climb ridges and scan the woods for squirrel nests. In areas where snow has been on the ground for days a tree with a nest can quickly be identified as occupied by the tracks seen on the trunk and the ground. As with hunting at other times of the year, sitting and watching a squirrel nest can be an effective way to hunt and take squirrels.

Another advantage to hunters in late season scenarios is that the nuts and other mast are no longer in the trees. Squirrels are forced to eat from their storage areas or to forage on the ground. This brings them down from the trees and onto the ground. If there is snow present on the ground the gray and red squirrels running around will be easy to spot on their way to a meal. Of course, the hunter will often stand out more in snow as well, so be careful of your movements. I suppose that snow camouflage would be an asset but I have not ever felt the need to use it to squirrel hunt.

Don't give up on squirrels when the weather gets bad. They are still in the woods and the hunter looking for meat for the pot should be there too.
