Anyone been out calling crows yet? I haven't been out hardly at all... I think maybe twice. Nothing memorable about either trip really, killed one or two on each setup. I've been too busy with other things but I have a couple weekends coming up where I've scheduled to do some crow hunting, should get to warm up the barrells then. I have been calling crows for a few years now and I'm getting pretty good at it. I have a lot of equipment and (as always) too much money invested in the procedure but it sure is fun when they come in really hard. The first thing I learned about crow hunting was that it is a sport of technique and a continual learning process... I have modified my setup almost EVERY TIME I go crow calling from the way I had it on the last setup. The slightest thing seems to make the biggest difference, sometimes silly things really help too. You guys have any good tips and/or pointers for calling crows? There are a thousand different techniques out there and everyone has a variation that works for them. I personally like a good fighting crow decoy spread in low foliage cover. I'll use an owl decoy and a crow gathering tape to simulate a real fight sequence. That is the basic setup, I'll often modify it around to include mouth calls or motion decoys or something like that but the general setup always stays the same. I've been very productive with it thus far, hope to do better this winter. My goal is to kill 100 in a day, I'll let you know if that works out. Here are some pictures from last years crow hunting trips, Here is a nice frosty setup in some low lying foliage... me and my buddy Scott were setting up decoys for the first calling session of the day. We killed about five on this stand. This was part of my days take when the birds were flying good last December. Sometimes the wind and weather conditions make all the difference, this day was perfect. I took 29 in the morning hunt, ran out of shells twice! Had to go to the truck the first time for more rounds then had to drive to town for the second round! Okay, so this wasn't a "crow hunt" but I still like to brag about it. One day while lining in some rifles I sniped this crow at 173 yards with my 17HMR. I called and killed a few that day as well, still proud of that shot.
