Inflated Owl Decoys Crows (Jul, 1940)
Inflated Owl Decoys Crows
Crow hunters have been supplied with an unusual accessory in the form of an eighteen-inch pneumatic decoy owl, which can be carried rolled up in a coat pocket and inflated when needed. Crows are hereditary enemies of owls, and attack them whenever they find them in daylight. Hence, the decoy placed on an upright stick in an open space attracts the crows and brings them within gunshot. The body of the decoy owl is made of heavy, durable canvas which is painted realistically.
