What kind of hand call do you use. I've got a Johnny Stewart e-caller and the first year I about wore out the shotgun barrel. Next year was pretty good but not as good as the first. This year I can't buy a crow to come in. Seems some of the resident birds sit up high in the pecan trees and just laugh. I've got a hand call I picked up at WalMart but it sure doesn't sound like a crow. Or maybe I just don't know how to use it......I mainly use a mouth call as the wisen up to ol' Johnny Stewart's games pretty quick like.
