    My youngest daughter is home from college on Christmas break and she wants me to take her squirrel hunting in the morning. Its supposed to be around a high of 38.

    I was just wondering because we've had a few days of relatively warm weather and then having a temperature drop for the last couple of days, do you all think that the squirrel activity will shut down because of it? I don't recall going squirrel hunting with temperature drops or this cold before so I was wondering if the temps would screw up activity.

    I’d say as long as it’s not windy you’ll be fine.

    Normally, I see more Squirrels this time of the year, on Sunny mild days. Hunt late morning or early afternoon for best results.

    Thanks all. They were fairly active this morning. Good thing I like about hunting them in the cold is not a lot of leaves and you don't have to worry with getting a mouthful of spider webs. LOL
