Hi all. I'm looking for squirrel chatter calls that work and don't require much movement. I don't mind premium price if the call works and is durable. The people in most sporting good stores in my area are young people who don't have the experience to make me feel confident in the call. If you've used a chatter call that you can comment on, possitive or negative, I'd like to hear from you. Thanks. THR rules.:cool:

Always used a couple of 2 bits with a hole punched through and held together with a pc of leather, looped...hung off left (weak) hand pinky. Rubbing the two quarters together makes a 'chatter"
, when I let go -minimal mov't, and the leather loop off the weak hand pinky does not affect the shot.

Doin' good to have 2 bits, a pc of leather...gun borrowed was a single shot, 22 longs, back when...

system still works...use it all the time from my back deck, yep still come around to see ...

never warmed up to the new ones myself...

i love to hunt tree rats and think i've tried every call on the market over the past 15 years. my favorite is a "scolder", the body is green with a black ridged tube (maybe 5" overall length), i think it was made by quakerboy but not sure. i use it as a locator. give it a few squacks and they talk back to ya giving away their position. great success with the big reds. that one goes with me everytime.... the rest stay home in a box. I even baught a cutting simulator once, knew it wouldn't work but its a conversation piece. also have used the red hand-op squacker with marginal success. good luck

I like the Scolder too. Fits perfectly in the front pencil pocket of a pair of Carhart coveralls. With it in your pocket and the bellow up, you can operate it one handed, keeping your other hand at ready on the rifle. Just make sure to duct tape the bellow to the call. Got wraslin' with a turkey one evenin and lost the bellow. Now I'm stuck runnin with some wally-world special.

A more ingenious man might pull the bellow off and put the call in his mouth, if he practiced awhile....
