I had a squirrel job this week that netted one female and three males at the same spot. Seems a little early but when it's time, it's time I guess.

Interesting point is that it's been the coldest week in a couple of years.

Anyone else seeing breeding activity starting?

They've been chasing each other around for almost 2 weeks here. 2 to 3 squirrel calls a day for the past week. Just talked with 2 people who e-mailed with squirrel problems. 3 squirrel set-ups for tomorrow (Saturday). Gotta love it.

Yeah, but I think the squirrels here are chasing each other to keep warm.

When you say "tight breeding season" I assume you are still referring to squirrels? ( Us old guys tend to get confused )

Lol Paul don't go to far too I will have to tell your wife LOL

some areas are blessed with a small breeding time frame. maybe 2 months. then there are areas that the breeding can go for extended time frame. say Dec to April, then there are areas that there is breeding going on as a hit and miss all year. the guys that do alot of squirrels tend to see this more than the guys that have a smaller grey squirrel problems I do not know about the fox squirrel and the breeding time frames other than what I am told by those that have them.

here is a pic of a squirrel we are trying to catch at the wct

My wife says that she woke up next to that same squirrel and at first she got excited, but then all the snoring turned her off.

Why not just give him a conibear and tell him not to stick his head in it.

Phil, I believe she was probably referring to the "Grab a loaded gun and start firing" kind of excitement.
