crow Hunting
crow calls:
how to call in the black birds 

There are two main types of crow calls that can be used individually or in tandem, which are manual calls and electronic calls. Both types have own unique traits that make them popular with crow hunters. However, at the end of the day, you should choose something that you've practiced with and feel confident going into your crow hunting season.

How do you use a manual crow call?


Assembly Call

This is a two-note call, a smooth note and a raspy note. The smooth note is made by saying the word "fuu." The raspy note is made by humming the word "all" in your throat. Combine the two for medium to close-range calling.

Alert Call

Say "foo" in 1/2 second intervals in series of twos and threes. This is a long-range call used when crows are just audible. It's also very effective on spring gobblers.


This is the most common call made by humming the word "all" in a series of threes fairly rapidly.
