    I've hunted them with longbows and recurve bows. Far from a foolproof method and lots of arrows stay in the trees.

    I'll be heading out tomorrow for opening day w' the .22, but since OP wanted primitive methods.... http://www.break.com/index/amazing-flying-squirrel.html

    I was actually offended by a similar video, seemed cruel, but with a lil improvising I'm sure this could be adapted for humane primitive hunting.

    I didn't even notice the first post. But that was the original that kinda urked me. I don't agree with sendin squirrels flying for fun, but for survival it could be adapted.

    i have a friend who invented a similar sport by accident.

    she was camping, and saw a squirrel on a nearby sapling. as she approached, it ran up towards the top. she bent the sapling down towards her to get a better look as the squirrel panicked and tried to run down, which startled her and she let go of the sapling.

    i'm assured the squirrel was fine, wherever it landed. i did not witness the event.

    No sweat. Nora built those contraptions. She just likes a fling every now and then. (Now that's funny I don't care who you are).

    Rat traps and peanut butter. Tie the trap to a tree so only squirrels get nabbed and you aren't leaving holes in the trees. Hide's good and you won't be worrying about chomping down on a "bb" when you are eating it.

    I did learn that as a kid and used it for several years. Good ridge edged quarters. I can call them by mouth about as well now.

    Sounds like there might be some truth to this? Do you rub the edges together or "tap" the edges together?

    I actually raked one edge across the other edge. Sort of like striking a match. The ridges rubbing against each other sound like a squirrel barking.

    I would usually find a tree or trees they had been working and sit some place where I had a good view and wait. If that didn't work then I'd call them...sparingly.
