Just wait, sooner or later one will fly over and see ole Brother crow all stretched out. , wait, he may well fly off, but will come back. Once he is satisfied the area is safe he will land in a tree and start calling up all his brothers to come look at ole Fred all dead and laid out.. Wait,, Once the tress are full of crows all yelling and squawking, open fire!!!
Of course that area is then ruined for that same trick again, but you can always find another place..
haven't done it in years, but it does work.
Your darn right it works, I've never seen the likes of crows that will fly in to see a dead crow on the ground. They will come in and circle it just a few feet off the ground.
My 3 boys and I love to crow hunt. We will slip out in the back yard and start calling. Check out last years crow blind....
