Fall and March seems alot better. I always have the hardest time in July to get em and even see them. March snow really helps to get there attention, but don't wait too long to shoot cause they figure it out quick when using decoys. Edge of fields with large trees to shoot out of in the fall with a call only has also worked. Doesn't seem to scare every crow off in the county when ya shoot, when using no decoys. You can also kill a lot of time in the early goose season. Plywood silhouettes have been awesome for crows, but you burn up your steel shot.

July is a good time to hunt crows,there are the young of year that are real stupid, only it has to be a cool mourning because they do not like the hot days either. I like to take the crow call andjust blow through it and make long calls. Sometimes at this time of the year you will here that call made by young birds begging food or something. The adults usualy respond to that call. Owl crow fights calls usualy work too aswell as dying crow sounds. I have been out twice this season so far and have killed 4 birds, not many I know but we are not in Kansas. Chuckwagon if you would like to hunt Carlos Avery sometime let me know, I have an electronic call that usualy brings them in and I haven't burned up all of my good spots yet, after a few calling sessions from the same areas they get pretty smart. Also when you are out at this time of the year you have a good chance of calling in coyotes with crow sounds, so be ready to blast them when you see them. The couple I have killed snuck in pretty close and died by 6 shot.

Good Luck,

Dave

    • She cant stand Needs a chair to sit on Clint happens to have a nice one.  You might be too old to get this then but don't blame your lack of comprehension on anything but yourself. Maybe your heart meds need tweaking or alzheimers is kicking in?
    • most reports in this area very poor way to much water  
    • Lone wolf but they are expensive. Muddy brand is not bad!
    • I bought the work shop and like it, It dose take a little practice from not pushing down to hard on the knife wihci allows it to drop below the guide, pluse the arching of the tips of knives can be challenging. I know theres an tension adjuster but it only adjust so much, go use kid gloves it seems. but i do like it
    • I'm up on it.  But bring on the translator.  I don't speak stoner.
    • Try to keep up with the conversation. If you need a translator let me know and I can try to round one up.
    • My WorkSharp arrived last week and I have been very impressed with how quick and easy it is to use and how nice it is to once again have kitchen knives that can cut 1/16-1/8 inch tomato slices with ease.
    • I actually wanted Ted but I considered him Lying Ted because of his agreement to support the nomination and he didn't until now.  Switching things around I would be voting Trump with a D behind his name then.  You are the crowd-follower who would be voting for any candidate with the L behind his name including Hillary.   Glad we agree you are supporting Hillary and will own everything she does if she wins.
    • Gary Johnson is not the solution to any of those issues has he has zero chance of winning.  Get your tin foil hat ready for the nuclear holocaust.  By the way who said spending and the deficit isn't on the list as I said I just named a few?  So as usual in your elitist way of thinking you are wrong again.
    • All I know is that the local gun shop was packed today and I was told that I would probably have to wait until after the election to have any chance of finding what I'm looking for. Sheesh people........haven't you already buried enough guns in the backyard over the last 8 years?
