    Did a little wing shooting today with my son. 25 crows in a little over an hour using a fake gut pile and crow call.
    Great action. Crow 2016.jpg

    HA HA Good one Claybird. It is easy to make a fake gut pile. Used 1 can of spray foam. The type that is rapid expanding bought from Home Depot. . Just pile it up on a piece of water resistant cardboard or poster board. I threw a little rope in to add dimension, then painted with dark red, brown and gray spray paints.

    Great idea! I've always thought a fake fur piece and some red spray paint on the snow would work along with a couple of decoys, but I never tried it. Hmmmm......

    So does Mountain Dew in the snow. Well, not a gut pile, but you won't want to eat it.

    Great idea.

    They are another means to find a deer also, if you can not follow tracks or blood trail. It does not take long for them to gather in a large group, once they find food. Hopefully it is cool, and they find it very quickly of course, and before the Yotes.

    My dad turned me onto a neat trick back in the day of field waterfowl hunting. We would take real long strips of heavy plastic sheeting and lay it between the rows of corn stubble and put a few dekes on it to look like water. We had ducks come down so hard we almost didn't need to shoot them for they about knocked themselves silly landing on the "Water". We really used to do it if we could find some rows that had a lot of combine ruts to really make it look real. Killed a lot of ducks doing that. And still do once in awhile as a commemorative to my dad.

    Used the fake gut pile for the second time and took down 45 crows in less than 2 hours. Seems to work really good.

    Ray Charles could tell the difference between a Crow and Raven.

    In our part of the world you will never see more then a pair of Ravens together and they are Super spooky. I have had a Raven flare when I was standing in a fence row just by blinking my eyes. A Ravens bill is square and looks thick while a crow is more straight. Ravens in our parts of the country are huge compare to a Crow. A lone bird is almost always a Raven and a Raven even has a different flight style. I guess they could be confused but not my somebody who is even mildly observant.

    Have you had problems with it falling off while transporting it a few times?
