The squeeze call never worked for me, but as I said in an earlier post today calling them by mouth was worked very well when they are already barking, but also when a single squirrel is in the top of heavy leaf old oak tree dropping all kinds of cuttings and I just can't see it.
Many times mouth calling to them will bring them out of the top of the tree, down into an opening, closer and on less bouncy limbs which are more stable providing a still target and good shot opportunity.
I remember once straining to see a fox squirrel in the top of a big old oak that would only drop a few cuttings occasionally driving me crazy and waisting a half hour or more when I needed to get over the hill to other productive nut trees and one mouth call and here he came, so I used it many times after that with reasonable success.
After the squirrels have feed up well midmorning they are often ready to play and will chatter at anything they see or hear. Slipping in on them is great practice for increase ones stalking abilities as well as eye and ear coordination need to locate them and more challenging then just setting, waiting and hoping and as mentioned previously if you call to them they will call back for a long time....but remember they are alert.
