Agree with Joel. Those guys have some good eyes and are considered the most intelligent bird on earth. They have been know to respond to rifle shots during deer season to tackle the gut piles. Use #4 shot or larger. They are tough too. Keep in mind, if you wound one several more will respond to that. Don't know why but it happens.

When I was a bit younger (13 or so) Me, my dad, and 2 older brothers used a variety of shotguns. But we had so many crows we just sat under a big tree on the edge of a corn field in lawn chairs. We would sit for about 15 mins, wait for alot of crows to land in the tree, everyone would take aim and someone would count down. 3-2-1 bang!!! 15 mins later they would all be back. Our farthest shot was prob not over 20 yds. As far as shot I am guessing it was probably 6. With 4 of us in the house my dad used the 12 gauge. And me and my brothers fought over the 16, 20 and 410. Whoever had the 410 shot the closest crow.

P.S. Joel I have one of those 16 gauges in my gun cabinet. Stevens Model 940A. Savage Arms. Handed down from my Grandpa who went on out of this world in 1988. I will have this gun till I die.

Venison~Lover, Here's a link to a GREAT Federal Premium usage guide...

This guide will tell you what game, what load, what distance, what choke, what gauge shotgun to use.
It's VERY useful info for all of us... there's a Print Page button on the top left of the chart...

Good Luck
