Crow Hunt

Excellent day of crow hunting today. I set up in my big been field with my 6.5/284 LG with the intention to shoot some long range crows. There were some crows in the field when I was setting up so after setting up I glassed the field with my 7x42 Swarovskis and picked one out. The one I picked was in a spot I shoot a lot he was sitting on my 720 yard bank. I put 16 MOA elevation in the 24x Leopold scope and 2.1/4 MOA for windage. Put the cross hare on the crows chest and pulled the trigger. The 140g Amax connected. I drove down and picked hem up then went back to the hill to wait for more crows to land after a bought 20 minuets one landed I had to range this one with my Wild range finder 720 meters I put the clicks into the scope 19 1/2 MOA elevation and centered the cross hare pulled the trigger and watched the crow fly off impact was 6" down wind with good elevation. I waited for another crow to land in the field another 30 minuets and one landed 900 Yards out. I put more elevation and windage into the Leupold total 24 MOA elevation and 3 1/2 MOA windage. I centered the cross hare and pulled the trigger one more crow for the day. I drove down and picked this one up and took the rest of the day off.

Re: Crow Hunt

Here in Nevada it is only legal to kill crow not ravens and you have to be able to tell the difference between the two. But as the auctioneer at the Chukar Foundation Dinner said, 'Anyone know the difference between a crow and a raven? The raven is the one that flew off!'

Re: Crow Hunt

Sounds like a great day to me! [img]images/icons/cool.gif[/img] Can you tell us about your rifle? I'm thinking of having a 6.5x284 built for just the kind of varmint shooting you have described.
