Re: ?? Crow Sniping

Thanks for understanding. You might want to check into crow calls, there are mouth calls and actual machines. I never got into shooting crows but I know men who do. The crow is a very spiritual bird, I don't mess with crows.

Re: ?? Crow Sniping

Something is only spiritual when its dead

I use a .22 magnum to help them find their peace.

Re: ?? Crow Sniping

In the south we use a owl decoy and a good owl call.

Crows hate owls and owls kill crows at night so normally the crows cant resist the chance to
kick some owls ass.

We place the owl decoy on a snag 2 or 3 feet off the ground and place a few crow decoys
around the snag.

We use both the owl call and a crow call. (with both hunters calling at the same time)

Normally we Carry one accurate rifle In 22 cal. and a shotgun for the smart ones that wont land
for pass shooting.

A good camo blind is a must.

Have fun.

Re: ?? Crow Sniping

Al excellent ideas..But for what I would like to do ,I think as far as a call
goes I would need one of those high dollar remote calls that I can
operate from something like 2 or 3 hundred yards away and maybe
a couple decoys set out so the crows will land...Thats why I am thinking
some type of bait would be an idea attraction..

J E Custom is one of my favorite members on LRH. If that is how he hunts crow then that is exactly how I would do it, no questions asked. I always look forward to his posts.

J E Custom - Any suggestions on calls? I might not shoot any right now but it would be fun to learn to call.

Thanks for the kudos, but is is just the way I hunt them.

I started out using a owl hooter and a crow call (Both were mouth calls) and had good success.

We used a 12 gauge with #2 lead shot for up close and pass shooting. After a few rounds the
crows would fly off a few hundred yards and light. then we broke out the 22-250 and had some
more fun.

I now have a Fox Pro and it makes less mistakes than we did, But I have not seen any increase
in numbers, Just easier calling.

A good blind/hide seems to make the most difference and moving frequently like you do when hunting coyotes.
