Odd Squirrel Question

I live in the SW part of the state and hunt a variety of habitat. My favorite habitat for hunting turkey and deer is in the mountains. The particular ridge I hunt is close to 7,500 acres and I have covered a good portion of it over the last 10 years. During this time period I can count the amount of squirrels I have seen on one hand. There is a lot of mast trees and certain years has a over abundance of acorns. I always found it odd that I never saw any squirrels. My only thoughts have been that itís high elevation, predators and winter keeps them from inhabiting the area. Last week I was hunting Elk State Forest and climbing the mountains surrounding Sinnemahoning and saw a healthy population of squirrels all the way on top of them. Lots of nests and squirrels all over the place. Winters are harder up there and there are more predators. Does anyone have an explanation for this ?
