I’ve never used a squirrel call - I just sit under the tree and act like a nut....

We are all good at gathering boxes of hunting stuff that mostly stays in the boxes. Animals are generally close to what they eat. If there is nothing there then all the calling will go unheard and if there are plenty around you won't need the call. This is of course all IMHO.

Calling for squirrels is mostly about getting one you've spotted to come out of hiding. Or when you've shot one and know there is another maybe a mother hanging close to show itself. Most fun is using a squirrel dog to tree them.

I like to hunt squirrels after the first frost, but before deer season. That way mosquitos aren’t as bad, and you can scout for deer sign while you’re at it. They are most active when they are gathering their food for winter. This will change depending on where you are located. I am not sure about Iowa, but this works good on the east coast.
