locating birds "my style"
I live on a 70 acre farm and I have been hunting bird's for the last 9 years. A tip I use to locate birds! Throw away the crow call and the owl hoot!!! Go buy an AIR HORN and give it a hoot!!! Ive located so many birds and killed some big Pa long beards. Last year was 11 1/4 in beard with 1" 1/2 spurs. Once i locate the birds I slide in within a 100 yds and set up Mr. B mobile that i replaced with a jake fan and snipped the beard down to about 2 inches. i set 2 hens out with him and the birds just cant resist!!! Good luck to all you turkey hunters Hope this tip works just as well as it does for me!!! gobble gobble gobble!!!!

I don't know if I'll do the air horn idea, but the decoy setup wounds pretty killer. Good luck on your property and following seasons.

I find that a crow call works well, but you really have to hammer at it several times. Just blowing the call to sound like a crow won't often work.

I'd imagine the air horn would work. Something to keep in mind, especially when hunting new areas that get some hunting pressure. A new sound can work when other common locators won't.

I may try it thanks for the tip, about any loud nois will do the trick. I have walked right by birds using the owl call only to walk by again using a more shrill call to get a responce.

locator calls
a buddy of mine told me that a crow call wrong and too loud will get better results cuz it bugs the gobbler and he just has to say something.

I'd try the air horn thing but it might prevent some landowners from signing my permission slip again next year...

The birds around my house get used to me hooting and crow calling, I now use an yote howler and they'll answer just about every time.

I bought a crow call for locating, but I feel like I wasted 8 bucks... I made a tube call for no cost that is LOUD.

If I just blow as hard as I can into it, it's almost deafening.

I have used my car horn on occasion and it generates a response sometime
