Default Squirrel!

I have to admit when it comes to hunting my first love is squirrels, killed my first one when I was eight years old with my mothers snub-nose .22 revolver and been after them ever since. And yes you can call squirrels! Spring and early fall are the best time of the year for calling but they can be called about any time of the year under the right circumstances. Squirrel distress whistles are the way to go, the bulb style barking calls are a waste of time, I have never in my 40 some years of hunting squirrels called one in by barking at them. Anyway I have only seen a few posts on here about squirrel hunting so I thought I would share a few pics and see if there are any other squirrel hunters on here.

I use a FoxPro for squirrel too. ive shot some while calling coon in daytime using coon puppies distress. I ve found the same as you that squirrel barks don't work but the distress call brings them out for a look. glad to hear from another squirrel hunter.

Guys I know this is an old post, but here in the UK the grey is a pest species and I have a small estate to get rid of them just wondering how easy it is to call them with the foxpro and any other tips and tricks you guys know, I have put a couple of feeders up, the owner wants them gone as they are stealing his chicken eggs and decimating the songbirds nests tks

Those are pretty sweet. Do you sell these? Ps I have used the bulb bark style before, but I like to use it to stop them. Barking tends to freeze them in their tracks for an easier shot
