Well I've never had a need to use a squirrel call. I just take five steps into the woods I hunt and they are everywhere. I could probably get five at one time with a shotgun if I tried but I don't really squirrel hunt a lot. I do notice at least ten at one time consistently when I deer hunt in one spot. I have thought about busting one or two with my .308 but don't want to ruin my chances of seeing a deer.

My Dad died when I was six and I never hunted or fished.
Then I got married and learned a lot from my Father-in-Law.
For Squirrels we always used Shotguns in the Walnut and Oak Tree areas on family property.

We'd kind of stalk, walk slowly awhile and sit for awhile.
Squirrels always seem to rum to the opposite side of the Tree.

When we spotted a Tree with squirrel or two, we'd tie a string to a branch or bush where we were standing.
Then slowly walk to the other side of the Tree and so would the Squirrel.
After sitting in a firing position for a while we would tug on the String shaking the Branch or Bush at the other end.
Then the squirrel would always come to our side of the Tree and Blam.

I use a 10/22 for Head-shots now, as I don't like chewing Lead Shot missed when cleaning.

That string thing is pretty smart. Lucky for me I can usually put a round in them before they move. We've got some pretty dumb squirrels because they aren't hunted a lot.

Around here they get hunted hard but I guess I'm just good because I usually kill alot of em and I don't ever need more than one shot usually.
