Re: crow shooting today

Alfred,

When I was in the army and stationed in KY, the migratory game bird treaty had already gone into effect. TNs reaction (where I actually lived at the time) was to have a crow season that was open about 11 1/2 months out of the year . . . but it was only open on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. Always thought that was a pretty good way to meet the required number of closed days to satisfy the Mexican government, without really getting in the way of anything. Wonder if it's still that way? Some of my first ever long range hunting way back then involved crows, a Remington 700 VS, 24x Leupold and 85 grain HPBTs.

    What's the total weight on that beast and how much of the weight is in the stock...man it's a big one. Cool looking rig and great shooting...crows are small buggers at 273 yards.
