The reason I hadn't jumped in is because I hadn't seen the thread until now. LOL.
Crow Sniping - great fun and practice. I love the .17 HMR for that purpose tough I have used a variety of rifles, both rimfire and centerfire. I mainly drive the old roads in winter time and look for crows sitting up. They seem to hang tight longer when the temps are cold, giving a little more time for a shot. I also find them around barns and where cattle, corn, feed etc is. Where you find cattle you will generally find crows. As well, crows just seem to have certain places they like to congregate and perch. Once you find that area, you can just sit up and wait a while, or do some calling. Find an area that's safe to shoot, put out a few decoys with some nearby trees, and let the fun begin. Crows will generally fly around and around, squaking and going crazy over the decoys, but some will also land in the trees nearby to take a look.
Get out early in the mornings since crows are hungry when they leave the roost, and they will go directly to a known food source.
As to the video link Wahoowad posted, the video is basically for fun and sharing. I really never had any intentions of trying to market it, but who knows. I keep adding to it as I go so it's a work in progress. The video is a lot of fun to do, but I admit it's very difficult to be a one-man-show. I've missed a lot of good opportunities to put more crows on the ground by having to get the camera in position first.
By the way Wahoo, how are things / hunting? Haven't talked to you in a while.
Here are a few photos of the past:
