I have the best results by stalking. But I dont stalk the squirrels, I stalk up to groups of oak trees. And oak trees that border pine flats are absolute honey-holes. I ease up close but not into the oaks and set up a camo folding chair quietly and with as little movement and noise as possible. Then I dont move a muscle for 20-30 minutes watching. I stay far enough away that I can see but the squrrels forget about me because Im not an immediate threat.
