Yea i do but not as often as i use to because i started bowfishing in the off season. as far as tips go, get within a couple hundred yards of the crows before calling. also remember to always kill the first one. he is kind of like a scout. if you kill him more will come.

I do it but not like most people. We go to cut cornfields and set up in the woods around 150-300 yards away and shoot them with rifles. They are good practice and when your that far away they dont get too scared from the shot.

I use a 223 AI or 223, whichever I have with me that day. PA there is no season for crows so you can shoot them year round. Lot's of fun and practice.

we got into it last winter and i advise against the turkey choke. we had best results with around a modified choke and 6 shot. had some cripples with dove shot, and my old left over duck shells seemed like overkill. I agree shoot the first one, but heck just shoot everyone that comes within shotgun range. i rigged up my own ecaller, but had just as good success by sneaking within a few hundred yards and mocking them with my mouth call. brings em in close. Next year ill be trying a bigger decoy spread (6-12) and a flapping wing deke.

IT IS A BLAST
