Realtree Video: How to Hunt Squirrels in the Spring


Squirrel hunting is full of tradition. Depending on where you live, seasons might be offered in spring, summer, fall or winter, depending. Some tips follow:

1. Some states like Kentucky offer springtime squirrel seasons. As always, check your wildlife regulations.

2. Move slowly along wooded game trails, two hours after daybreak and two hours before dusk, to find active squirrels. Sit as well at the base of trees and watch for squirrel activity.

3. Wear Realtree camouflage to blend in with surroundings, and also some hunter orange if squirrel hunting with others, or required by law.

4. Always eat what small game you kill to extend the hunt and enjoy meals taken by hunting.
