Title: crow and squirrel call training
Post by: caverdude on March 14, 2013, 08:01:35 PM
Whats the better resources on the web or otherwise to teach one to call crows or squirrels? I just picked up my first crow and squirrel calls.

Hmmm, let me guess you have pecans? Had a squirrel recently get under my truck hood. As I was taking apart his nest, he popped out and scampered off like Road Runner on the Saturday morning cartoons.
Cut several wires where it won't crank and having it towed to repair place.
I need to get one of those calls as well and dig up my recipes for squirrel stew...

The best thing to do is get out and find the animals and just sit and listen. When you get to a quiet spell begin trying to mimic the sounds with your calls. Very slow at first, just one and two notes at a time. Eventually you will be able to mimic the animals pretty well. Then, use a website such as http://waterandwoods.net/2008/09/wild-animal-sound-bytes/ (http://waterandwoods.net/2008/09/wild-animal-sound-bytes/) to learn what the calls mean and how to use them.
