Our season ended here in NC on Feb. 28th and what a season we had.  Thanks to the cold weather up North we had ample birds to hunt.  After sitting the first week of March out we still had the itch to chase more crows.  In our neighboring state of VA their season ends March 15th so we planned a trip for this past weekend to the mountains of VA to try our luck.  The plan was to leave Friday morning and drive the 2.5 hours to the VA line and start hunting our way to our destination near Danville, VA. where we would stay the night in a cabin overlooking a lake and hunt out of there on Sat. and head home Sat. afternoon. On Friday morning we headed out on our journey and as soon as we crossed the state line we stopped on an old dirt road in the middle of no where and made our first stand.  To our surprise, fresh uneducated birds came from everywhere.  We dropped 12 birds in like 15 minutes.  We were riding on a high for sure after that.  We made 8 more stands as we headed up with a morning total of 49 birds.  About 1:00 we came across a large peanut field full of crows and it did not take us long to speak to the land owner about helping him out with his bird problem.  We stayed on this farm for the rest of the day until we felt we had to leave to reach our reservations by dark.  We had a confirmed kill count of 51 standing in one spot for two hours.  Probably could have milked it for another 20 had we stayed. What a great start on our first road trip with 100 birds.  Got up Sat. morning to a crisp 35F cool windy morning heading to who knows where.  Got a bite to eat and just started riding and asking permission riding further North to get up in the mountains to see how the birds react.  We had never shot birds coming in from below us before.  Really different but what fun! We made about 11 stands and I do not think we had any that the birds did not come in aggressive and willing to sacrifice their lives to the callers.  The only trouble we had was figuring out the wind direction.  When we were down in a draw the wind would be coming from one way and up above us it was blowing the opposite direction, got fooled just about all day on that one.  Every time we would leave the back door open and every time they would come from that way.  We ended up the day taking 119 birds for a road trip total of 219.  It is already on the calender for next year.

I would like to give a shout out to rookie hunting buddy this year.  On the last day of our road trip he solo mouth called and killed his first solo crow.  One happy camper. smile  Virginia may be for Lovers, but Crow hunters are welcome...........

Is on it strange to hunt crow because they are innocent and have nothing to do with us. I have been looking for the best dissertation help online to complete my essay through it. I would like to join you if you hunt eagle or so but not the crow please.
