    I go with some friends on their land and hunt them. We take turns calling them in and "Get'um!!"

    How do you hunt them cause they sure do get on my nerves when I deer hunt. Making all that racket pisses me off. But they never get close enough to shoot.

    i use a electric caller and some crow decoys. just place your decoys around the field and put the speaker beside them.cover the speaker with a little grass to hide it.when we hunt the woods we dont use decoys.theres different tapes that come with the caller so try them all til you find one that works best. i shoot 3" light loads with a full choke and they work great. when the crows come in be still because they can see the slightist movement. wear full camo,gloves and face mask. hope this helps you some. i know what you mean about trying to deer hunt and all them crows around you. they come past my stand by the hundreds. good luck.

    Our season starts in Oct. I use and electric caller too. Its a great sport. As the season go's on and you start finding gut piles and carcasses from deer season, the crows are easy to locate. Just set up a few decoys and hide good. Once they start it can be fast and ferious....

    What do ya'll do with them? My dad said that when he was younger they would eat them. But he's liable to tell ya anything. I haven't heard of anyone eating crow.
