Video: How to Crow Call with Will Cousins

According to hunting legend Will Cousins, “Just because you’re a bad guy doesn’t mean you can make a crow call.” In this video, we go over a few tips for refining your crowsong technique so you’re sure to gobble up every big timpani in earshot this season.

When making a crow call, you can use your hand to launch the call to make it more realistic. You can also use a humming technique to further distort the sound.

A mistake many novice callers make is simply putting the call through, resulting in a screeching kazoo sound. To avoid this, think about hot versus cold air coming out of your mouth. Primos explains that cold air is what you blow on steaming soup and hot air is what you use to mist glasses that need cleaning. A good caller can toggle between the two to make the call sound the way he wants.
