Spring Squirrel quest.  Just because winter is over and turkey season takes spring’s center stage doesn’t mean small-game hunters are through for the year. At least nine states offer spring squirrel-hunting seasons in May and June, presenting hunters with solid opportunities to get in the woods before summer hits full bore. Hunt about three hours after dawn and a couple of hours before sunset.  Squirrels may be out in the middle of the day, but if temperatures are climbing, it won’t be comfortable for you. If you hunt with dogs, be sure to find water or take a jug for them. And if you do find yourself in the afternoon woods, look for squirrels in dense foliage and on the shady sides of older trees.  Spring Squirrel quest.  Squirrels will be digging in leaf litter for nuts they missed last autumn, so don’t pass over areas with mast trees: oaks, beech, hickory. Last autumn’s fallen leaves are still dry and crunchy, so keep your ears open for the sound of squirrels scrounging in the litter. But they will also be high in the trees, feeding on tender buds. Look in the highest, most limber branches.A good squirrel dog is a ton of fun, and an extra set of eyes never hurts. But if you don’t have a feist or cur, become a squirrel ninja. Be stealthy and patient. Listen for squirrels barking or chattering, and watch for jumping and chasing. If a squirrel is watching, keep still. Move when it moves, and take the good shot when it’s presented. Camo up with green-foliage patterns.  Spring Squirrel quest
