View Full Version : Ohio crows

I went Thursday AM early to look for crows. I found about 100 or so. They were evenly divided between 2 fields about 8 miles apart. Last night on the way home from the store we seen probably 250 crows flying in the general direction of one of those 2 fields to roost. So I decided to setup on the closest field 1st today. Just hoping some would fly South to my location.

Well it didn't quite happen that way but the other 50 or so from yesterday did show up to the same area. I was able to call them from my location & really enjoyed the shooting. I used the CZ712 this AM. The sky rained black feathers for hours!! Well maybe not that much BUT,,,,, 17 crows became a little more mild mannered than when they came in!!

There is 16 in the pile. Ol #17,,, which was actually the 13th crow of the day,,, ended up downstream somewhere. Seems they don't swim all that well when they're full of holes!!

You can see the "floater" about 1/3 of the way down the pic. Along the hanging branch on the left.

I don't understand why my pics don't show. I use the same technique on other Forums.

Yesterday AM wasn't a total bust. I got out for a couple hours on the last day of Crow season anyhow. I went to the other field where I had seen around 50 or so birds on Thursday. These birds were flying a lot higher than the day before which made for a lot of watching & not as much shooting. I did get some within range but they circled behind me over the thicker tree tops rather than out front. I did take quite a few "Oh what the he77" shots tho!! I managed to dump 2 good crows.

Here's the 2nd one.

And here's the 1st.
