Heavy lunges, bulgarian split squats, hack squats, front squats, hill sprints (for calves, also supports quad growth), step-ups, squatting with different bars (safety squat bar, giant camber bar, etc).

Something like this:
Monday - Heavy quads (squats, leg press, lunges...)
Tuesday - Volume hamstrings (supersets, higher rep ranges)
Thursday - Heavy heamstring (deadlifts, good mornings, heavy lying curls...)
Friday - Volume quads (6 motions, 2 sets of 50, must finish in 40min)

Any form of squats destroys your hamstrings as they are involved in the "hole" as they call it and are the one of the only muscles being engaged at the bottom of the squat. You're literature is lying to you...

Okay... Okay... Let me be more specific.
Olympic high bar squats.
The best hamstring workout other than pulling bar none. Once your below parallel the only thing between your ass and the floor is god and your hamstrings contracting.
Sadly maybe 1 in 10 people at my gym squat... And 1 in 10 of those people high bar squat. It's a damn shame because this exercise will put hair on your chest.

Hamstrings function in both hip extension and knee flexion. So no, squatting would not be sufficient stimulation at all, even if at full ROM.
A great, often-overlooked exercise that hits both actions of the hamstrings is weighted glute-ham raises.

Sadly, many gyms do not have the equipment necessary for them.Originally Posted by mr.cooper69
I enjoy pull throughs personally.

I have two variations at my gym and I look at them thinking "I wonder." Will add them during bulk.

Just got back into lifting about 4 months ago, and just relized I completly forgot about goodmornings !!! Legs are tomorrow to, you got me excited !!!Originally Posted by Rodja
I naturaly have very large legs, mine were bigger than my dads at the age of ten. My only advice is squat every week, and heavy to, you shouldnt enjoy yourself while doing squats. If your not gasping for air and dizzy after each set your just waisting time.

As someone with awesome wheels ;-) I agree with this ^^^^Originally Posted by Rodja
Before my torn hamstring (from baseball) when my legs looked better than now my leg routine was (when off DC) squats, stiff deads, good mornings and front squats (heels on thin plywood). There were a number of days I wouldn't even mess with extensions or curls. I would throw in glute ham raise occasionally.
