With the funny winter we have a huge amount of crows and ravens in the state this year and I always wanted to know So: :
I have sent Three E mails to our Fish, Wildlife and Parks to find out if we can shoot and call crows and Ravens. The first two where off there sight to there enforcement Bureau. The last one I sent to there General Info E address in Helena to get the proper department. I don't know there policy on answering Questions like that but I would thing who ever got an "E" would or Could forward it to the right department, I don't Know ,Just saying...
If I ever get an answer before there all moved back up to the Attic circle I'll pass it on and let the whole world know if it's legal to blast away...

In MN crow season just opened up. Also, you can shoot them at any time during the year if they "are doing or about to commit damage" to your property, crops, etc. They are not federally protected any differently than ducks and geese are (they migrate, hence the federal part).
Sometimes I think...
'Do I really want a beer?'
Then I remember there's a supervolcano under Yellowstone that is 40,000 years overdue, and when it erupts, it could potentially cover most of North America... and I'm like,
F YEAH I WANT A BEER!

Do you normally get a lot of crow in MN?

They are considered carrion eaters, same as Magpies.
Back in the day you used to get a nickel for every pair
of Magpie feet you turned in. Now all carrion eaters are
considered off limits in Montana.
