    To my understanding it is supposed to sound like the chattering they make. Never tried it myself so I can't tell ya if it does any good or not.

    Ive had it work a few times. I think the best time to use them is early in the season when the trees are so full of leaves you cant see far, but I think its always worth a try if your not seeing any. I had one just about jump on top of me, thought I was going to have a story about getting attacked by a squirrel.

    I hold 1 quarter in my left hand,between my thumb and forefinger,hold it flat making a circle around it so the tip of thumb and finger touch.

    Grasp the other coin in right hand.Strike the flat coin with the edge of the other coin at a 45 degree angle.
    Strike rapidly 5-10 times.

    much easier to show than describe:crazy:
