I am curious how you all call up the coons. Somehow, I ended up with a Primos coon squaller on my lanyard, but i've never tried calling coons, and not sure how best to approach it.

This is what I have... what kinda sounds should I be trying to make with it?

Seems like alot of the mouth calls are a squall, it's gets their attention

My MIL has developed a great method of calling raccoons. SHe feeds cat on her back porch and has a healthy raccoon population. Every time she goes out and calls here kitty kitty the raccoons come running.;);)

I use a Western Rivers Cassette player with several fighting coon and coon puppies tapes. It is very effective in woods and around farmsteads. I play it loud near where I believe coons are denning. They will flush and try to move out when confronted by fighting sounds.

I use a coon squaller to get coons to look when they are treed by my dogs. I have never tried to call in a coon with the squaller. To blow the call just roll your tongue while blowing. This sounds mimics coons fighting/breeding i think.

A coon squaller is not a coon call but is mostly to get them to look at you when they are in a tree. The best hand call for coons is the Burham Brothers blue coon call in my opinion. I have called hundreds though out the years with that call. It makes the sound of a shore bird in distress but you must trill it with your tongue. You can also trill a high pitched closed reed call to make a bird in ditress sound. I have also had success with E callers with the coon kittens or baby coon in distress sound. JMHO ET :D

I use my squaller when I'm hunting with hounds to try and help find the coon in the tree. The best way I've found to call them without using dogs is to use a coon puppies sound. Dennis Kirk has a couple great cassettes and Fox Pro has some digital sounds. Find a den tree set up your caller and start watching holes if their there you'll find out pretty quick. It best to use a .22 mag or .17 mag when calling this way it will put them down if you hit them. A regular .22 doesn't hit hard enough and they can get back to there hole and die inside the tree.
