Like all styles of hunting, squirrel hunting requires thoughtful strategy.

Using HuntStand Pro for squirrel hunting is super useful. You can mark key locations, trace your paths in new swaths of timber, keep tabs on your hunting buddies, and find new public or private land. There are many ways to use HuntStand for squirrel hunting, so get creative and make the most of your e-scouting before burning expensive gas and boot leather.
If you watched “Lookin’ Up,” a HuntStand Original Film, you witnessed the excitement and allure of squirrel hunting—even among a group of folks who have hunted everything from Cape buffalo to bighorn sheep. Squirrel hunting presents a great opportunity to get together with friends for a lighthearted hunting camp, along with high odds of bringing home some tasty meat. The film featured a squirrel hunt in Kentucky, which has abundant public land and lots of squirrels.
Looking to gear up for your first squirrel hunt? Check out our review of the Savage A17 Sporter semi-automatic rifle, which proved to be an ideal squirrel hunting rimfire for HuntStand’s Josh Dahlke. He topped the A17 with a Burris Fullfield IV riflescope, and loaded the magazine with CCI V-Max ammunition. It’s a deadly package for squirrels and other small game or varmints. Josh was also able to test the Lodestar lace-up boots from LaCrosse, so watch the review right here if you’re in the market for some aggressive new hunting boots.
