In AK, we would find a group of trees with obvious signs of squirrel activity (fresh husks all around) we stand perfectly still for a minute or two, the give a loud wet kiss between the thumb and fore finger. (fingers held straight and tight together)

This would generally make at least one or two nearby squirrels come around from the other side of their tree and look.

I shot a lot of of them this way. Walk a half mile and do it again. Sometimes we could just sit down and wait ten minutes and get another. Not smart creatures, tasty, but not smart.

90% reds, 10% grey/black.

I do mean a lot. Hundreds. (Granted I am a good shot, but I wasn't the only one)

After months of this, I moved from shotgun to 1022 with open sights to a Ruger MII 5.5in bull barrel. Even took two with a Bear bow. Lost the arrows so I didn't do that again!

Still took 5 a day if I wanted. Open season on Reds year round back then. To many to count. Grey's had a season, but it was long and generous.

(Skin them, soak in salted water for an hour and roasted on a open fire. Yum! I would carry corn on the cob or potatoes in my pack, whatever the BX had fresh or frozen.)

the 50 cent quarter call works better.

You use the ridges on the edge of the quarters

We used to hang our jacket on a branch and walk around the other side of the tree. When the squirrel would run around the trunk it would see the jacket and automatically reverse direction. Worked every time.
