Favorite, special hunting techniques?
Daylight finds me sitting under a Hickory nut tree. I sit quietly, barely moving.
I shoot the first squirrel to show up (in the head), with my scoped 22.
I leave it lay but mark the spot in my mind. Wait for the woods to return to normal.
I shoot the second squirrel to arrive.
I pick up both squirrels, attach them to my belt then begin a slow, slow stalk to the next Hickory tree. Then the next and the next.
A limit of 6 is not uncommon before lunch.
Same plan in the Acorns (Oak trees).
Get to know the nuts (The ones that grow on trees i.e. Chestnuts, Pecans, pine nuts, etc) and when they mature. Hunt there, then.
Depends on my mood. Sometimes I find a good mast area (acorns, beech, hickory, etc...) and sit. Sometimes I like to stalk them. Other times I use a call. It all works ;f
What kind of call? I bought a "Buck Gardner" 3 way call. Barks, Chatters, Distress.
I used the Chatter then a squeal. I stirred them up then they were gone.;g
Calls check out! http://marksoutdoors.com
I use the Primos Squirrel Buster. They sell it in a pack with an instructional c.d. http://www.primos.com/product_info.php?products_id=55
I find that it works really well during the "rut" time. Squirrels will come check you out and offer you a shot. During early season add some movement to the calling, move a sappling around to imitate the sound of a squirrel jumping from a limb and feeding, scratching leaves and even clicking money or other items together to sound like a squirrel is feeding.
It's fun and kills time, especially if you have a kid with you.
