    Brings back some good memories.....Never Killed 115 in a day though. Good work!


    Are those birds migrating back north??? And you're catching flight birds, or are they local?
    May you pin all the marks and line the blinds!!

    A lot are on there way back now. On this hunt we are hunting a flyway between the roost and feeding spot.

    Basic equipment for a crow hunt? Lots in our area, never thought about pursuit.

    # of decoys?

    Electronic call if legal?

    Mouth call?

    Blind?

    Time of day best?

    shot #7 lead of legal?

    What to do with the birds?

    # of decoys.... dozen+- (I like the flocked ones.) personally I like a little motion mixed in.(have used a flapping bird toy painted black) have to switch things up regularly if you hunt the same birds. Sometimes an owl decoy with the crows around it also.

    electronic call...... yes, with several different sequences
    Blind.... depends where you are hunting, good camo and facemask sitting in fence row or cover works well
    Time of day.... scout, hunt when you normally see them there
    Shot... I prefer high brass 6. they can be tougher than you think

    Nope, not good to eat.....

    I'm not exactly proud of this but, I had a buddy that used to sneak a few crow on the grill. He would wrap them in bacon, marinate them with everything in the fridge, and sneak them in with a grill full of duck, or deer. Joe would snicker at us as our faces got all screwed up by the taste. Crow tastes bad. I don't hunt with Joe any more.

    I've heard of people eating crow, but chuck187 is the first one I've heard of that's actually done it.

    You really gotta be careful about how high a pedestal you put your method, your accomplishments, your dog on. There's usually someone who's done more, somewhere. And they may have used a different method than you did! Chris Atkinson 2013
