Crow

Postby Big_Willy » Tue Feb 17, 2009 10:30 am

What's up Scooter,

Ya know, if you want the bird in tact #4 shot would be perfect. If you just want to hunt them and get a bit more range T shot, BB shot up to #2 would be my choice and a tad more fun. :evil:

Have you been getting any crow lately or any yotes for that matter?

4's,5's and 6's have all worked well in the past.
I saved alot on my insurance just by switching into reverse and fleeing the scene of the accident.

We use anything thats available... but if I was going to buy shells just for crow hunting it would be 6's or 7's.

Good Luck!!

The closer they are the smaller the number shot you can get away with. However, they seem to be pretty tough birds to me, so I would tend toward #6 or even #4 if you are specifically purchasing for the purpose, and the cost is not prohibitive. I have used #7 with luck, but you have to be patient, and cut loose at the last second before they land in your lap.

Most of the fun is in the missing and laughing at each other. It is not like you get a good meal out of it or anything.

Happy shooting!
