what am i doing wrong?

Recommended Posts

My brother and I are new to crow hunting, we just figured it'd be fun to hunt in the off season. So we bought some nice decoys and my brother has an electronic call. so we went out today and as soon as the crows flew over the decoys they started making noises i've never heard. they wouldnt even come below the tree tops to look.

what are we doing wrong? are there any patterns we need to set the decoys up in? we have 6 of them. do we need more? What sounds do you recommend we use? We've tried the crow fight and dying rabbit. Thanks for your help.

I just use the caller with the crow and owl fight tape. Get up against a tree or in some kind of cover and wear a facemask and good camo and start your caller and get ready. If they are any near at all they will be there in a minute or two. Be ready and take the first good chance you get. Crows have super eyesight so don't move and be ready as they will come from any direction. Give your spot ten minutes and then move on. Now if you are in a spot where crows are moving through you maybe could hang out longer. If they are coming in just above the tree tops they are probably in range. Shoot! Good luck and let us know how you do.

Crows are very smart and have a language so to speak. If you do not know what your are doing with a mouth call you could be scaring them away. My grandfather had a crow as a pet in the 20's and he always said they have a distinct language. I have had little success with a mouth call. ITs like waterfowl calling you are better off not calling if you aren't making the right calls for the situation. Try a location just electronically and see what happens. Kill as many of those nest robbers as you can.

I'm just using a old style Western Rivers electronic call with a cassette tape. You can get different tapes with pretty much any sound you would want. The new digital calls like the FoxPro would be the way to go if you wanted to get serious.
