The reason we see more squirrels deer hunting is we are willing to sit still longer when we are deer hunting. As far as time of day goes, in mild weather they are more active early morning and late afternoon. If the weather really gets cold, especially if it is windy, they don't come out much, and when they do it is mid-day. A good time to hunt them in the winter is the first warm day after a cold snap. As for location, look for hickory trees with cuttings on the ground. They eat a lot of acorns too, but leave less evidence. The skills you develop hunting squirrels will help you be a better deer and turkey hunter if you decide to give those species a try.
