Not sure about regs on crow hunting, but I was invited to go with a buddy of mine, his Dad, and some friends. Had a great time and we did use electronic calls and other calls.

They are a wiley and challenging quarry.

SPECIES REGULATIONS
CROWS
Electronic calls may be used. Crows may be taken outside of these dates only when causing agricultural damage

did find this but did not say weather or not could be used on public which i guess if it doesn't say then its all good to go

We didn't have any black trash bags.

Had some itchy trigger fingers though.

BINGO, gotta scratch it somehow since duck season is out. Not many people hunt them around my area so its like an untapped market for wing shooting. Not to mention i didn't realize the devastation they do to other birds nesting, reading up on them i seen where they are nest robbers and really put a hurt on dove.

We tried one time when I was a chap, stunk up the hole house. Grandma threw it out in the yard and the cur dogs would walk up to it,smell it and walk away. They ain't nothing but a flying possum in my book. Good luck, I shoot a lot of them too. If you find their flyway where their coming to or leaving their roost, you can stack them up. I use a old garden owl from Walmart and pull it up on a limb. They love a good scrap
