Thanks for the recommendation huntsman. :D   Squirrel calls are like any other call, sometimes they work, sometimes they don't.  It all depends upon just how the squirrel's feeling that day.  Some days, I've had squirrels barking at me from everywhere and some come running when I used a call.  Other days, I wouldn't see anything or hear anything.  There's even been times when I watched squirrels turn tail and head for Dodge when I hit the call.

The only way to find out if it will work in your area is to get one and try it.  Don't give up on it after just 1-2 tries or days for that matter.  Squirrels are moody little buggers.  You've just got to catch them on the right day. :D   And when you do.............BOOM, BOOM, BANG, BANG!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D  :D  :D  :D  :D

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.

I use a Hunters Specialties Squirrel call. It comes with an instructional tape so you can find out if you are doing it right.......... It is the best call I have had so far and it works. It has a little port on the bellow that squeaks like a squirrel that is wounded..... I have had hawks come into this squeak... It really sucks when the hawk is looking at you and wants to divebomb you... :shock:  Anyway.... I highly recomend the call......
Yes squirrels are really moody... I hate when they run... Its hard for a head shot...
I also found out that you can only scare them twice in one day, after that, they won't come back..... until the next day. :twisted:

I find that BC is correct. My call works on occassion, but not always. Like fishing, you need to have an arsenal of things at your disposal so if the call doesn't work, you have other ways to bring them in.

BC got it.
ECCLESIASTES 12:13-14 Now all has been heard;here is the conclusion of the matter:Fear God and keep his commandments,for this is the whole duty of man.For God will bring every deed into judgement,including every hidden thing,wheather it is good or evil.
