Fox squirrel and grey squirrel crosses are fairly common.   We have lots of them and we also have some nifty looking all black squirrels. Some are shiny black and some have more grey in them.  The all black ones are very pretty. And of course we have a small herd of red squirrels too but we try to keep them away because they are the little devils that cause damage.

Oh.....and a herd of chipmunks that like to come up on the deck at cocktail time,  walking all over us and waiting for a peanut. Some of them we can (carefully) pet and they just sit on your knee cracking a nut.

Thanks for the info eyeguy. We don't have any fox squirrels around here but we had one red running around last summer till the neighbor shot it last fall.

I assume the little red squirrel must have moved in an aggressive manner that lead to the neighbor shooting him. Or perhaps he shot him for food, to feed his sixteen hungry kids.

Surely he did not shoot little red simply for his own amusement?

We have had a regular plague of them here. They wreck your buildings and the danger of them starting a fire by chewing on the wires is very real.

You hit the nail on the head Del. Plus he terrorized the gray squirrels at every chance, they would see him coming and they would scurry away.

    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
    • We had no problems but only brought 10 extra gallons over.  We fished 5 days, pretty much running wherever we wanted and ended with 7 gallons remaining in the boat.  So, we burned 30 gallons of fuel in a 1785 Lund with 90 hp Mercury 4 stroke.   I thought that was pretty good!
    • Seems to me that we are missing an entire page from this thread that was here yesterday.... what gives?
