How to Use Haydel’s Squirrel Call
A good way to lure a squirrel to a location is to mimic their natural calls. You can use sounds such as barks and rapid-fire chatters to entice the bushy tails to come to you. However, you can also use different sounds that mimic the noises that a squirrel would make, including whistles and barks. If you’re a beginner, try mimicking the sounds of a squirrel in your yard or garden, to get more success.
Mr. Squirrel Whistle
The inventors of the Haydel’s squirrel whistle were able to get the sound of a squirrel out of bottle caps because they could hear the sound the animals make. In order to achieve the same effect, the inventors first took a live squirrel to the University of Mississippi. Scientists recorded the frequency of the squealing sound and then re-engineered bottle caps to create a whipping sound that matched the precise frequency of the distress call of a squirrel. The whistle was manufactured from various types of aluminum.
The Mr. Squirrel whistle works well when you’re hunting bushytails. These treetop tricksters will respond to the whistle and be drawn to the location you’re calling them. The whistle mimics the distress calls of young squirrels, which will attract them to your location. Once they’re lured to your location, you can use the whistle to scare them off. This will help you make a catch in a timely manner.
