That may be illegal, check your local game laws!
If you are crow hunting in the winter, put some red food coloring in water, pour it in the snow to look like blood.

My grandmother would sew black fabric around a coat hanger and stuff it with pillow stuffing. You use a long pole to hang them in the tree and you have a crow. Pretty cool idea, I assume they worked but don't know. Now that I remember that, may have to make some myself.

I use a owl decoy, and staple a black rag to the bottom. makes it look like the owl has a crow in its claws.
