Re: Crow hunting
Crows are carrion eaters, so not fit food for humans. I have hunted them over decoys (owls) made of plactic, and with calls. I also shoot them if I have the chance. When I first moved in here 20 years ago, I had lots of crows in the yard, and I have shoot many of them over the years, but they don't come around anymore. They got smart! When I was thirteen I was visiting my dad in NM. We made a trip up into the mountains to do a little shooting. At a picnic area that was filled with crows, dad told me to try and hit one, so I shot one, and the others flew away. The adults were all talking about how they wished they could get a shot at some of those crows, so I laid the one I had shot on a picnic table, belly up, and gave it a sharp blow to the chest with my hand. The air rushing out of the crow's body made it "caw". Obviously, the crow wasn't shot thru the body! After a couple more blows the other crows started coming back, and the adults got to shoot several. They were all surprised that I knew that this could be done. It does work, and I have used it many times. When you are a kid, and have no money, you improvise!
Y'all be safe now, ya hear!
