I'm new to squirrel hunting; been a few times and it's great hunting. One question: do you guys hunt in the rain? I was thinking of going this week but not if the rats are tucked away. Seems they like clear sunny days but I don't have the experience to say about other weather.

Thanks!

Light rain is ok, but they won't move if it is really windy or raining hard.

You can think of it like this as well, go if it is raining ( lite rain), when the rain stops, they come out, then you can hear them in the trees.
But agree with the others as well, long rain, windy, dont go,

Lite rain or right after a rain is great. I almost think you can hear one jump a mile (not quite that far) plus it is easer to sneek up on one.

Squirrel hunting during a drizzle or just after a rain is great. You can move quietly and the squirrels can't help but gives themselves away when they move. If they shake a limb it's a lot easier to hear and see when they are. Yea...take your camo poncho and go.
