How common are eastern fox squirrels in central MD. I have only seen them at one spot I hunt in Montgomery Co. Thinking of taking one to go along with a grey squirrel I mounted. Don’t really want to take one if they are rare since I have only seen a handful and only in a small area.

It really depends where you are. I mostly see them up on the mountain. They also seem to cover much more ground than a grey.

Eastern fox squirrels are more common as you move West in the state. Allegany and Garrett counties have good populations. i am not sure about Washington county. This picture is from a thread I stated a while back titled Traditional Squirrel hunt you can review it. We got four fox squirrels that day. There are a lot of squirrel hunters on the site.IMG_0355.JPG

Thanks for the replies everyone. It’s wired, I have been seeing them for several years at mckees but only in one area. See atleast one every time I hunt that spot sometimes three or four. Going to go ahead and harvest atleast one thanks again.

I see Eastern Fox Squirrels in Washington County often.  They tend to like the mountains.  In fact,  I usually see them when I'm hunting in the higher portion of the mountain instead of the lower portion.  They're so big they move more like a groundhog than a squirrel.  lol

My information is old, but years ago a guy I worked with hunted squirrels in MoCo on the upper Potomac from a canoe. He shot lots of fox squirrels.
