If so, how has your season been so far. Also, what tactics or calls do you use? We killed 63 last week in 2 different days on 4 different farms.

I actually heard (but haven't tried it) that you can breast them out just like a dove - wrap with bacon, and grill them (or bake in oven) and they are good.

But as I said, I haven't tried this myself. Around there, they eat pretty much the same stuff doves do... so I don't know why they would be all that bad...

:fit: I know that's right!! I've been thinkin bout doing some crow huntin myself, but I got in mind gettin me one of them .17 HMR's & shootin em out in the field behind the house bout 200 yds. (If that's legal & if the .17HMR is good out to that distance)

I have been crow shooting 3 times this year. We average about 15 per afternoon. I have only been able to hunt for a short period in the afternoon.
It seems that the birds this year have not been so plentiful this year. Remember that they are migratory too. After one setup, they become smart and weary of anything out of place.

How come you can kill a crow at 50 yards stone dead with long brass 7 1/2 and steel shot 2's at 30 yards only cripple a teal?

Beancounter, the reason is crows can't take the "shockfactor" like other birds do. It doesn't take nearly the impact to put them down.

We have worn them out this year!!!!!!

Headed to Collins on the 14th to spend some time with my dad and hunt crows, 'yotes, fox and 'cats!!! Can't wait!!!

Between me and my FIL, we've killed over 250 crows. Most of them were within a two day period. We had "migrant" crows at the farm where the sky was literally black with crows! They would not stop coming in... and we never reset, we just kept loading and shooting. It was a good time!!

When duck season came in we just quit the crows.... but it's time to hit 'em again!!
