Default crows

I was thinking about crow hunting to extend my hunt season but I really don't understand why I should kill a bird and not eat it. I was informed that crow was not table fair. Some others saycrows are a pest and need to bekept in check.

I hunt crows in pennsylvania. I have killed my fare share but they arent as easy as people think. u just cant go sit out in a field and kill them one after another. u need a good blind, some decoys and a good calling setup. They are a good food source for the possums and coons.

yeah, if you want to hunt and or trap coons and possums you can use it as bait or feed it to your cat or maybe the neighbors or something like that

Crow hunting is great!
I have a blast doing it. Just bought a new call for $200 w/ some Johnny Stewart tapes for it. It is awesome.
It is much harder than one would think. They are smart!

Good times my friend. Many farmers don't like crows cause they are a pest by eating there crops and such...plus it feeds wolves and yotes!

Old timers used to put a owl decoy nailed to a post and black fence wire with two dark treble hooks attached .One off each ear to snag crows as they dove at the owl decoy.Then you had a live decoy and the other crows would swarm to save the hooked one they thought the owl was killing.They used to sell this setup in the old 1960's Herter's Catalog..................Harold
