2013-2014 Season Outlook

Squirrel populations are expected to be abundant again throughout most of the state. Hardwood mast crops were good in most areas. Although the past winter was colder than the previous year, squirrels should have entered the late winter and early spring breeding season in reasonably good physical condition due to adequate food resources. It is anticipated that hunters should see good numbers of squirrels again this season.
