Action alert on HB2011 regarding Pre-Emption

Rep Mike Turzai has committed to move HB 2011. This bill strengthens pre-emption by providing for standing and compensation of expenses in the event a local law needs to be challenged that conflicts with State gun laws. Corbett said he will sign if it is put on his desk in the remaining 11 days left to the legislative session.

Default CROW HUNTING

Hey all,
I've recently been hunting crows after church on sunday(since thats the only thing I can hunt), and I have soon discovered they catch on very quickly. Yesterday we shot two right off the bat but then they started to fly VERY high and we never got much shooting after that. Does anybody have any suggestions of how to keep them flying lower or other tips so I don't educate the whole flock?

Thanks for anything

I would find multiple spots and change up daily. Change the volume and recording of your calling.Decoys, decoy's, decoys. Never shoot the first birds into the set, live decoys provided by nature are best, more birds will come.

Thats probably the best advice you can get. If you just wound one, don't kill him right away, they go nuts over a wounded one. Also I like the crow in destress tape or call, and you could try baiting the area too, I've heard dog food works well.

Upstate, we just have to walk through the woods, stop, wait, shoot.
Repeat as needed.

When i lived in New York , i used to like to hunt them , but after awhile they would stake out my yard and go crazy on me with noise and so on , real upset for something, when i moved to Pennsylvania , thay dont come near my property, they avoid my property like the plague, they are on all my neighbors property but they dont come near me at all.

I have a berreta Neos loaded up with cci Stingers and a reddot ready to go but they wont fly over on my property.

The crows in the front of the flock are scouts, you do NOT want to shoot those. If you shoot those the rest of the flock won't come. Crows catch on really fast about getting shot at. Most people like to use tapes and decoys like owls or hawks. I believe the proper term for raining down the crows with hollow points is "black rain" lol. Bigshovel said it right, don't shoot the first ones. Areas where you are concealed well like in trees and stuff also usually work better than open fields, but I have hunted them quite well in open fields before.
