Had some decent crow hunts around Trinity (southwest of Huntsville) before the crows moved out of the whole area. Had a couple of good spots off of Red Hat Road, another area that is now kaput! The old landfill around Trinity was a big drawing card, had many a memorable shoot around that dump.

Nevermore,

Nice video. Thanks for posting it. Looks to me like you were a little hampered by the brush and stickers, but moved forward a bit to your advantage. It's always a dance between good concealment and barrel freedom.

Heard the mouth call initially, but no calling later in the video. How were you bringing them in...Hand calling or electronic?

Keep knocking them down and posting the results.

Demi

Hey Bob,

Yes I remember Trinty.  Hunted it several times with permission in a bean field near the dump.  It was a great spot.  Tornados tore thru the roost and ruined it but we still have the memories.

I have a good roost Im looking at near Hollywood,AL.   It is a large cattle farm and a good friends family own the place.  They are big into the waterfowl over that way and I can't wait to get them into a few crow hunts after the duck season.

 

The video hunt was in Madison County where the Flint river enters the TN river in our bean field.  We duck hunt there but I always do some crow shoots as well.  Sometimes I do a set on the river bank and it works pretty good.  Birds are always looking for a fish to eat and they move right down the river bank early in the morning.  It is always good place to get the dog some work retrieving some birds before the waterfowl season.

Yes I stay quiet at first and just try to pick off some hanging close by.  Then when it slows I use the hand call and give it a try for a while to get a few more.  Then use the shockwave and start with crow gathering and other mid attractors.  I finish with the crow fights because that seems to bring them from great distance.

 

I have no idea if this is a good approach it is just how I do it.  Any advice is much appreciated.   This hunt I think we got about 30 birds.  I was just shooting what was in the newly cut beans and was nowhere near a roost or large gathering of birds.
