    Allamunchy Sate Park Squirrel Hunt 11/3

    Swamprat What about early morning? Do they move just as the sun is rising? Your answer makes sense, as the wind was causing a bunch of the trees to shake.
  5. Was hoping I could get some insight and advice on my recent hunting trip this Saturday. Made it into the field at Allamunchy by 11:45 am due to the weather predicting rain in the morning. I walked the route posted below, from the Allamunchy Pond to Deer Park Pond hoping to find some squirrels for my first hunt ever, as I just got my license last week. I hunted the route for 4 hours, making it back to my car a little after 4pm. During my hunt, I did not see ONE squirrel. I saw lots of squirrel nests in the trees and nuts on the ground, but no movement. I ended up seeing 1 buck and 4 does while walking the woods. I am curious as to why I saw no movement. Is it because I hunted the wrong hours? It was a little windy and rainy, could this have caused the squirrel to bunker down? My tact was to trek as quietly as possible to a bunch of trees (some of the park is super thick so I made more noise than I wish), and once I got to the trees, I'd sit down for 20 minutes and scan the tree tops. Again, with zero success. Did I not sit still for long enough? Any tips of advice would be more than welcome. I plan on going back out in the field this Thursday and Friday, as I have off work. I plan on hitting a new piece of land, maybe BlackRiver WMA or a WMA further up north. Thanks again!
