Public land squirrels like public land deer are well educated. Early mornings right after sunrise and late afternoons right before sunset is when they are most active. They also take longer to come outta hiding after being spooked then their less pressured cousins on private land. Wear camo or clothing that blends in and sit still for half an hour in a likely lookin' spot. If you hunt with a buddy sit on opposite sides of a tree with your backs together and watch twice as much territory. Many times if you let one forage unmolested for a while others get antsy and come out to, whereas if you take the first available shot the others stay hidden for another half hour. When you spot and lose one in a tree, have one hunter stay put while the other hunter walks around the tree. This will make squirrels hiding on the opposite side of the tree trunk expose themselves to one of you.
