Calling squirrel

So many types of squirrel calls out there now!!
Mouth calls, hand calls, friction calls, squirrel whistles, Rubbing two quarters together and other wildlife calls that you can do squirrel chatter on..


Has anyone ever used the quarter thing or the friction type call that is suppose to simulate a squirrel cracking nuts.. This is suppose to put them at ease and they just reaveal themselves.. You just sit up against a tree when they feel at ease they show themselves and you pop them one..

Squirrel whistles... Like "Mr. Squirrel" Suppose to be the sound of a young squirrel in distresss..It's suppose to get all the sqirrels in the woodlot upset that a hawk or owl got a young squirrel and then they reveal themselves to you. When your doing the squirrel in distress with the Mr. Squirrel whistle your suppose to slam a plastic grocery bag down on the ground and or a bush to simulate the sound of a hawk or owls wings as you blow the squirrel high pitched squirrel whistle..
Hand call... Just pump it to make squirrel chatter.

Mouth call either other wildlife calls or squirrel designated mouth calls you do barks, and chatter...
Olt makes a mouth call designated as a Squirrel Call...


Of all the calls I like to use the other wildlife calls to make squirrel chatter and barks and then shoot them with a 410 when they run right at you...


Do you use any of these squirrel sounds or techniques to call in squirrel?

have you ever tried to slam a plastic grocery bag? it about as easy as slamming a revolving door.

Life's too short to hunt with an ugly dog.

Re: Calling squirrel

No it's not the slaming of the bag on the forest floor that important.. It's the sound of the plastic making the sound of wing beats of a hawk and or owl...You probably could just shake.. LOL I got a bit carried away...I probably should have said just shake the plastic bag around and slam the small bush on the ground... Sorry about not explaining better..
However!!!while I have not hit the ground a lot with a plastic bag I have hit the tops of bushes with a plastic bag...

Re: Calling squirrel

I have a couple squirrel calls, the hand kind that you pump
or shake to make work. I have a Primos squirrel buster that
I really like! It can make barks, chatter, whines and the
distress call. I usually use barks for a little bit then
switch to the chatter if they are slow to respond.

I have never had any luck with the squirrel whistle other
than calling in a few hawks. Same with the squirrel distress
never any squirrels, only predators.

Tapping two quarters together does seem to work for the
ones that are close by that don't know you're there.

I'd rather be fishing or hunting!

Re: Calling squirrel

Last year on the opening morning of squirrel
and fox season I used a squirrel call first to call in a
red fox which I shot and then the same call to call in a
red squirrel which I also shot. The call was KCC calls
nutcracker squirrel call.

I'd rather be fishing or hunting!

Re: Calling squirrel

Just curious don't it make them hide thinking there is a hawk. Watched 5 of them in the trees one deer season. One of them gave out a sharp call and they just disappeared. Wondered what was going on then the shadow of a hawk approached. They saw it way before I knew it was coming.

You canít get them if you ainít in the woods!!

Re: Calling squirrel

Have called squirrels by sucking the back of my hand,
rubbing two coins together works also.
