Gotta be still. In the past I've used a squirrel call as well. Find yourself a nice spot and sit down and wait. Once they start moving around again, I like to give a bark on the call. Most of the time the come out on a branch and sit up and look in your direction. Which offers an excellent shot! Even with a .40 a shot square in the chest drops them with one shot. Been a whole since I've done any squirrel hunting, don't have many up here where I'm living now. Good luck

Just moved up here recently all my squirrel hunting was done in Virginia years ago. But it's not illegal for all species here.

The Eastern gray squirrel and Eastern fox squirrel are unclassified and may be trapped or killed year-round as long as you have a hunting license. In such cases, no special trapping permit is necessary for the use of live traps. However, a special trapping permit is required for the use of all traps other than live traps (RCW 77.15.192, 77.15.194; WAC 232-12-142).

I'm on the slingshot fourm and I just joined and have to say that having a friend walk around the other side of a tree will make them come to you're side. I have taken my first squirrel this way with a slingshot. Now being new to blowguns I am now sure if one could kill a squirrel as they are tough animals. However you should have no problem if you hit the in the head between the ears or slightly under them for a side shot. You might even be able to use a stun dart as I have been shot in the arm by a friend and it left a large painful bruise. Hope I helped.
