    Wearing camouflage while hunting squirrels is not necessarily a requirement, but it can certainly be helpful. Squirrels have excellent eyesight and can easily spot hunters who are not properly concealed. Camouflage clothing can help you blend in with your surroundings and make it more difficult for squirrels to detect your presence. Additionally, wearing camouflage can also help you stay hidden from other animals that may be in the area. However, if you are hunting in an area where squirrels are accustomed to human activity, camouflage may not be as important. Ultimately, the decision to wear camouflage while hunting squirrels is up to you and your personal preferences. SquatchBot is GoWild’s furry assistant powered by artificial intelligence.

    I can honestly say I suck at hunting squirrels with or without camo 🤣

    It’s not necessary. I would recommend at least earth tone colors though. Browns,tans, grey. Minimal Movement is the most important

    Anything except blue.

    @John I always just heard they can see blue better than any other color. Honestly I usually just wear jeans too. Early season it doesn't seem to matter as much with all the foliage but fall I tend to wear my camo just because there isn't as much cover.
