My buddy and i went crow hunting around 5 times now this winter without a single one... Decided to go desperate man and hunt a cut right right beside the dump (thinking this may be a guaranteed success) and still haven't been able to capitalize. WHAT ARE WE DOING WRONG? We have two electronic callers and have used every type on them from crow distress to locator. Also used sillo dekes on the ground.

 

I know people say to hunt in-between their roosts and food source but having a hard time finding roost spots.

 

Any input would be appreciated. Didn't think this was gonna be like yote hunting...

Not seeing any or not able to get them in shotgun range? If they've been shot at before can be even harder

Had a few come in last night but not in range. Think were going to build a blind in this spot since we go the most action there. Even with a blind, I'm not sure how they won't be able to see if you have nothing over your head...

Crows this time of the year are the smartest as well. The youngest ones are coming up on at least a year old... They made it through storms, cars, other predators, other hunters.

They have been in the same territory(Probably). They know something is different.

Known as a smart (Smartest?) bird for a reason.

Go to McDonald's before you go out and keep your bags. Place your garbage and decoys out and use crow mobbing. Should work. Oh btw FULL CAMO
