Any of you guys ever get out during the off season and shoot crows? Ive heard from guys that its great practice and try to do it as much as possible. Just wondering where to go to do this. If u hav any spots let me know.

Also, remember they are migratory birds that have a season that closes and opens...which means that Mr Greenpants can come and write you up.

Michigan season is aug 1 thru Sept 30 and Feb 1 thru Mar 31 BUT there is no closed season on them if they are causing crop damage ( eating your berry bushes) are considered a nuisence or pose a health hazzard. and I consider ALL crows a nuisence especially when they eat all my deer feed and food plots. So I do shoot them all year long but I do not nesessarily "hunt" them. you would have to drive around until you find an area they are flying or passing thru and then go there with possibl a crow call and a few decoys and see what happens. Just like scouting for duck.

Go around and ask some farmers if you can crow hunt their agricultural fields. Most will be more than willing to let you hunt, and I have even seen farmers offer money for people to come shoot their crows. You will most likely need a caller to bring them in, and electronic calls are nice. Foxpro makes very good calls, and I love mine, but you can also buy cassette tapes with crow sounds and stick them in a tape player to call them with. Another big thing is camoflauge. Crows have great sight, so dress head to toe in camo, and you will be good.
