good site plinker. got a yotte call works great. but brings in more foxes than anything. a tape of a wounded rabbit or a screwing rabbit or a rabbit that got bit.(by a snake) but it does work. and in v.a. or loudoun you can use a eletronic game call and lights for varmits.
yep know exactly whats ya talking about. and weve been having some cool nights. ive really thined them out (i think) but when weather really starts to cool i'm sure i'll find a lot sunny themselfs.
CHIEF SAYS : Same with turkey call . Slate/striker
here comes every bird buy a turkey. Least thats when I know
it must sound familiar or I am doing it right.
Now that Johnny Stewart electronic call , thats the pits.
SPEND $200.00+ ON AND TAPES, Just to call someone
named Johnny. Had mine 3 years only guy thay answered
my caller was the local warden and his name aint JOHNNY.
call work good on crows if you move
to different locations and don't
over work an area.
Crows learn real fast.
Crowa are only thing I have used them on,using a shotgun with decoys.
Have heard of people putting the call
under a tree,then backing off about
100 yds wait for the crows light in tree
then shoot them with a rifle.
Might work if you had a tree with
a hill side behind it to stop the bullets and had a good blind to shoot from.
Chief says :
I went overboard on the Crow calling .
set up remote , control , amplified electronic caller.
Added about 6 crow decoys , 1 owl decoy.
Plinker your right, Crows learn very fast.
The second time you set-up , leave the decoys at home.
The first crow that sees a decoy , tells the others . lets
"get out of here".
Ive studied the "crow" , his habits, likes and dislikes.
Rather amazing critter.
The crow = hates about every other species of birds , other
Crows will gang up on a hawk or owl , pester it till they get
tired. Crows will give the location away of a wild turkry , one
or a whole flock.
What is really amazing, Crows are smart enough to send a scout
to investigate a disturbance *(electronic call )*. If you dont
shoot at the scout and he doesnt recognize you as a threat,
he will bring back the whole flock to the location.
I have had so many swarm around the speaker, that a 12 gau.
shot dropping one dead , didnt bother the others the least.
Other times one shot. all leave the country , not returning.
