It depends on the area, the cover and the crows, My buddy and I set up in the edge of my half cut corn field not long ago, all I had was # 8's and they were coming in right on top of us, I think we got about 15,, they we coming in on top of us.. they usually do with the right sound and set up.. I really prefer 6 or 7 1/2's... full choke.. remember you can only hunt the weekends and only have 3 shells in the gun..

Actually, even though a crow is a migratory bird, it does not fall into the same set of regulations as doves/ducks, geese, etc.
There IS NOT a requirement for the magazine to be plugged while hunting crows.

My local GW specifically told me I could only have 3 shells in my gun.. I asked him.. If.. I get checked and in the process of a ticket.. can I whip out my droid and show him this post and not have any worries??
