Any of you guys ever heard of rubbing quarters together to make the sound of a squirrel cutting a nut? My dad swears by it...but he also says he can smell squirrels when he enters the woods!

Never heard of the quarters but can attest to the fact that you can smell squirrels. Me and my brother chased one up a tree that had no others around it and the squirrel had no choice but to jump out. He hit the ground and that musky squirrel scent was heavy. Every since then every time I smell that smell I know that a limb rat is in the vicinity. I can't smell every squirrel but some have a stronger odor than others.
If you hunt WITH your kids now you won't hunt FOR your kids tomorrow.
