hunt crows a little. mostly just behind the house though.I use a anchutz 64 target rifle with a 3-9x40 scope, or i bait the birds in close to a blind of some sort, usually a shed with the door open just a littleand shoot them with a ben pearson 45lb recurve . lots of fun when theres nothing else to do .

Well...24/7 hunter, I use electronic calls, dont use fancy decoys, just regular full bodie crows. You got to keep still and keep your face covered.I hope none of you get mad but...i cant eat crows, so i cut em up and make em into jerkey for my dog.[:'(]those things are so grody when you breast em out, but you cant waste what you kill. Tou need to check your DEC regulations to see what is legal for crows. Good luck

Crows are a blast to hunt, there nothing like seeing a group of crows making a beeline for you decoys. I hunt crows with a electronic call, 3 decoys, my shotguns and my dog. I have mixed success, buthere in MN they don't get in big flocks. The start to group up in the winter but thats about it. In the spring, summer, and fall they are in family groups. I mostly do run and gun setups, and usually get a couple.

Why would any one hunt crows?? Just to kill em? Or do you eat them? Thats nasty. It seems like it would be like a rat or something.
