Default Squirrel calls?

If you hunt squirrels, what calls do you guy use? Brand? I've heard that calling works really good for them, when you can't stalk them quietly in the fall.

i usually just rub 2 quarters together sounds like a squirrel eating a nut usually calms the squirrels down alot and they come out to see where the feast is. I never tried any other calls. I have heard that the barking calls only work good early in the season when the mother still has little squirrels, and i've also heard it only works on fox squirrels. Correct me if im wrong.

I use a bark call , but it hasn't produced any better than just watching for them to move .

They work. Got barkers, whistles/squeakers, and the old quarter trick is a good one too. The whistle/squeaker that mimmick a youngun getting ate work better early in the season than they do later on but I have used the technique succesfully all through the season.

The barker works for me usually as a locator. Early in the season I might get the rats to come out and see what is being barked at, take one or two, then go to the quarters. Later on I will do an alarm chatter and some skittish rat100 yards away will echo the alarm, then I stalk.

Use both the barker and squeaker when predator hunting too.
