Searching for black or white squirrels

Hey all,
I am looking for a place on the western side of the state to hunt squirrels- specifically blondes, piebalds, the semi rare black or the mighty rare white color phases. I have heard that you can be lucky and find them anywhere, (they are just mutant greys afterall) but can be found in greater numbers in some areas. I am looking for an area with a higher likelihood of having some.
If anyone could point me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated.
I am always on the lookout for something a little different, be it deer or squirrels (or anything else odd that I can legally and ethically hunt).
I live 15 minutes North-ish of Pittsburgh, but am happy to travel 2 or 3 hours to be in a known 'good' area.
Thanks and good luck out in the field! (or up in a tree)
Shoot me a PM or reply to this post if you have any insight into my search.
Thanks!!

A lot of the northern counties have black squirrels. Not sure about white ones though

Re: Searching for black or white squirrels

I have never seen a black or white one in 30 years of hunting Greene, Washington and Allegheny Counties. Can't help you there.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

One behind the house, you cant kill it though, lives in a safety zone. Hes got half a tail anyhow.

What I say might not be the popular trend but at least Im not afraid to speak my mind!

Re: Searching for black or white squirrels

Had a black one around my stand in 2G saturdya evening. Got a video of it. My brother also shot one up their on th eyouth squirrel hunt and saw another. I would say about 5% of the squirrels up in the area of our cabin are black used to be rare but nowadays we see one or two a hunt.

Re: Searching for black or white squirrels

I see about 5 black squirrels a day in my back yard but never a white or blonde.

Have seen a blonde at the taxidermist though, pretty neat.

Ive seen one white in 20 years. I even stopped a fall turkey hunt to try to get him, didnt work out.
