You got that right... Keep me posted on the results and I'll do the same.... I'm really liking the crow call on it and may use that first time out lol.... I've got a score to settle at one of my deer properties lol.....

Took it with me this weekend when I was target shooting out in Adams County.
Was showing it to my uncle and said "Let's see what happens..." turned on the crow fight and had about 40 crows flying in circles over us in about 1 minute, from 3 different directions, some I spotted coming at us from about a half mile away...wish I'd had some decoys out in the field to bring them down.

It was pretty cool. Next time I won't be playin'......

Me too, got to get some decoys but we've been knocking a few down here and there, but decoys seem to be the answer too getting them in close.... I found a sight that shows how to make them out of coat hangars and black trash bags or electrical tape.... I'm going to be experimenting lol....

I use cardboard cutouts and rattle can them black. You can glue clothes pins on them, or cut a coat hanger wire in 6 inch lengths. Jam the wire in the dirt then slide the spike between the corrugated cardboard. Make sure to make some of them side profile and some top profile. ;)

Crow season is now out in Ohio. But I'm sure you are all aware of that.

Congratulations on the Spitfire!! Set it up wind of you because the coyote will circle downwind of the sound.

Joe my buddy is working on the decoys he's the creative one of the bunch and he's got a few links too some how too's for decoys and we will have a owl in the mix lol.... June 4th will start back up but in the meen time the ground hogs and yotes will pick up the slack.....
