Any Crow Hunters Out There?

Postby Yellerdawg » Thu Aug 23, 2007 6:19 am

I'm really dissappointed in myself. Here it is 23AUG and I haven't been crow hunting once and it opened earlier this month. Anybody else out there crow hunt? They'll decoy like waterfowl and gets me in the field before September 1.....for dove and goose. :dealer:

I used to mess with it a little, but haven't now for some time. August is always busy for me. I train dogs in my little bit of spare time. So between upping my training to at least three times a day and shooting my bow, I don't have time to mess with'em. Besides my dogs won't even pick one up. They look at me like.."YOU want ME to pick THIS nasty thing up?" It was funny the first time I tried to get them to retrieve a crow. I asked a trainer friend of mine about this and he asked me, "you wouldn't want to put shit in your mouth either would ya?" So let's forget about those crows, cuz come next weekend it'll be a whole lotta honkin' goin' on in the morning and lots of fast flying fun shooting going on in the afternoon. :[]:

I've gone a couple of times just but it wasnt something that I stuck with. I was amazed at how hard they can be to hunt great vision. I hunted with a guy who used to get old black socks from thrift stores and he would kinda ball them up lengthwise and threw the socks out as decoys. I guess all those black spots made a difference because the crows came with no hesitations. Good luck.

Have killed many of them in my day.
Favorite call has always been the "Death Cry of a Crow".
Good eating too if you haven't tried them.

They are fun to hunt. A challange for sure. Most people don't realize how intellegent a crow is, great vision as well.

I haven't done alot but I would like to get out for them more often. Had a great time everytime i've been.
