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.

just about pissed myself.... eat crow.....takes about twenty for one guy's dinner plate, kinda like eating pigeon or prarie dog.... I hope I'm never that hungry

You do know that if you eat crow you are eating someones soul, right?
Here in ND we have a season, i shot one this year with my 177 cal airgun, at 15 yards, he was quarting away and i put it between the spine and the point of its wing, would have exited through the neck, it flew off with a few less feathers and a 8 grain pellet. I still see him flying around now and then.

Re: ?? Crow Sniping

They scare me, I was hunting Pheasant a couple of years ago and we went in the woods after one to finish him. After we found him, there were a few crows landing in the trees so I shot at one, with birdshot, missed and he yapped. Next thing I know there's a bunch of them hovering around looking, I kinda thought they were going to attack so I decided not to shoot. it reminded me of the movie "the birds." Are you guys sure it's ok to kill them? Mabe it was just the wounded Pheasant they were looking for.

Re: ?? Crow Sniping

I have hunted crows with a owl decoy and a crow call with a shotgun, In the fall I have sat over the deer carcases from deer season all the scraps and bones that are left and wait for them to land and make them explode with the 22-250 what a gas. But a freind told me a good bait for crows is a McDonalds bag and some french fries and maybe parts of an old hamburger, I have never tried it or if he was just kidding but it might work.
