    I hope so or I'm in big trouble. As long as season is in, you should be okay. Crows observed committing or about to commit acts of depredation may be taken year-round; however, persons attempting to take depredating crows shall not use blinds, decoys, calls or other lures to attract birds into shooting range during the closed season.

    Crow hunter, have you had good results baiting them? What do you use?

    I've got a spot in my backyard that's holds a few crows that I haven't shot yet. Gonna spread 100 pounds of corn or so around and see if I can't draw some more in.

    I've never baited crows, just hunted over corn fields.

    "Crow Corn" works best. Ask for it at Wal-Mart, they keep it in the back.

    Forget corn. I have my best results hunting over the dumpsters out back behind the elementary school. Just after the 1:00 pm lunch dump is your best bet.

    I remember seeing portable "corn piles" someone used. It was a couple of 2x2 clothes (burlap?) with a layer of loose corn glued to them. Of course crows have eyes like an eagle and these could easily been seen from above. Seems like they would work.
