    An old timer was talking squirrel hunting and mentioned seeing dozens of squirrels moving thru the woods in the Fall migrating to a different location.Has anybody seen or heard of this phenomenon before... very interesting to me, I have hunted for 40 yrs and never witnessed this myself.

    Supposedly happened in 1968 when there was no mast at all. There was a thread in here about it the other day

    I believe this Squirrel migration is underway in my area of Kentucky. There are various good articles, which you can google.

    I saw it. Hundreds and Hundreds of squirrels, probably more. The trees were full. They were traveling along a railroad track in Narrows, KY. I couldn't believe my eyes..I went home to get my gun, 3 miles away. When I got back, not a squirrel in sight. No one believed me. I would not believe this many squirrels could be in one place if I had not seen it.

    I myself would really appreciate seeing this in person.Can only dream about seeing a migration of squirrels scurrying thru the woods.I love to hunt squirrels and get much enjoyment out of taking a walk in the woods in search of the ol brushy tail.
    I get excited just seeing a lone squirrel..nothing like a good squirrel hunt.

    This migration would give a feist a nervous breakdown.

    My stepdad says hes seen it. Squirrels in every tree and by the hundreds. Daid they was just traveling through and it liked to scared him to death. Him and his brothers ran and got their guns and shot a bunch of em. He said he was just a young lad then and hes 75 now
