Well in South Texas, about 97% greys. I' ve seen most of my blacks in bayou areas, and I have seen a few in the hill country.

I live near rochester mn and hunt near winona. We have gotten 2 black squirrels this year. we have seen maybe 6, in the past 6 years i have seen a dozen or less, but this year i have seen 6. Maybe we got the right gene but i have heard it being more and more common in our area.

We have a bunch of ' em here in western Massachusetts. Saw my first when I moved here in the mid ' 60' s. Was told that Stanley Home Products (local business)had imported them from Australia. (I believed that!) But, after reading the messages here, I guess that ain' t so(either that or they stocked the whole damn I had a friend request that I get one for him...which I did. He mounted it arm wrestling on a stump w/ a gray. (cute). You can use the tails to tie some nice flies with also. They also taste the same as a grey.

The first black squirrels I ever saw were in Western Massachusetts. They seemed to be clustered in Westfield. Saw quite a few while attending Westfield State College. Also saw a lot of ' em at Tekoa Mountain. Seemed to be more stout that than the greys. Never did bag one.

Tons and Tons of them , I seen the fattest one the other night 3/4' s the size of a rabbit. Hope that don' t mean its going to be a long winter. Corn fields are the best for them. Public lands are full of them here...BT
