I am planning a crow hunt this coming weekend and want some thoughts...

I was out at the lease messing around on Sunday and we have a ton of crows. I used the crow call on my Fox Pro and had them all over me. So this coming weekend I am going to put out some decoys. I already have a Mojo Hawk Decoy and a couple Silo Sock Crow Decoys.

I was going to put the Mojo Hawk above one of the Silo Sock Flying crow decoys and make it look like the Hawk had the crow. Then I was going to put the other two flying crow decoys on the Silo Sock Tornado. Turn on the Fox Pro and shoot some black birds...

Tell me what you guys think of this setup. I am pretty sure it will work but just wanted some ideas from guys who have hunted crows more than once.

If your crows are like our crows, you well get two maybe 3 passes before they wise up as to why their wing man just became a lawn dart. Have fun!!

I have heard you have to kill the first one, he is the scout. if you miss the others wont come you shoot the first one and he cant go back to the others then the others will come in. dont know how true it is but thats what I have been told


If I put my wife in a high fence will her rack get bigger?

I agree. That is why unless you are near a roost I don't bother with decoys and owls just set-up Kall'em Kill'em, and run to the next spot and repeat. I move 1 mile at least between calling spots.
Normally in a good set-up we kill 10 to 25 then move on but some spots you may only get 5 or 6. Just take what you get and we rarely stay more than 30 minutes.

^What he said. Its ok to set up some decoys, but in reality, you move around enough that you don't need em.

They are West Nile carriers so I don't eat them but some folks do. They can be destructive but mostly I hunt them cause it's fun.

JJ is the resident Edgar Alan Crow. He will have some good suggestions for ya when he weighs in on this. Crow tastes like chicken.

If your place hasnt been hunted before on crows, you should be fine.
Just turn the foxpro on and off every 10 minutes for 5-10 minutes.
When you turn it on put the dead crow on.
When u see a crow in the three far away, turn it off for 5 minutes and proceed with the dead crow.
Before your first crow in the morning, turn the device on low volume, as you dont want the entire mob at once.
Throw 2-3 decoys in the trees attached to a fish line and weight.
Full camo and hide just outside a treeline.
Dont let a cripple on the ground walk away, new crows will flock to hum.
Have fun, its a blast.
If you had metrogun with metroshells, it would be better for your second time, as noice is reduced by 80%.
On your second try, crows will associate the gunnoise with trouble.
Use tons of chiggerspray.
