Re: ?? Crow Sniping


Some very good watching !!!! Thanks.

I have a 17 HMR and will try it out on crows. Its downrange distance is not bad and it is deadly.

I have also seen crows harass hawks before and capitalized on it but I,m Not a good enough hawk
caller so I use the owl .

IT is fun.

Re: ?? Crow Sniping

I love my 22lrs but I think I want something to reach out more, considering either a Briwning Tbolt 22 WMR or a 17hmr? Seems like they are similar but the 17 I keep reading fly's flatter. Can the 22 wmr be as accurate? Crow sniping seems like fun, I watched one of JE's videos and I love how the guy tagged those crows. What do you do with them afterwards. Leave um or retrieve them? Eat them? Seems like if you leave them you might be able to bring coyotes ar raccoons and such in for a later hunt.

I don't think a 125gr V-max from a .308 would be too bad. Post pics if you got them.

The 110 grain V Max would make a satisfying poof as well

Re: ?? Crow Sniping

Back to the OP's question.
I use a half dozen decoys, and I also use bread that has been soaked in RED jello, makes no difference what flavor. What you are doing is making it look like meat. Make sure you break the bread a bit. When they try eating the bread they will not be spooked because they will like the flavor. Camo is a biggy. Crows have good eye sight and they are also intelligent.
Do not shoot the scout!!! Shoot the scout and no more birds coming in.

Re: ?? Crow Sniping

I have a gillie suit I wear..I even managed to get up close to a woodchuck without him knowing.But It took a long time..In the summer this method is dangerous,as you can crawl over a bees nest and it aint no fun..Plus here you have to wear an orange hat..But I doubt you need the hat for crow huntin..
