So what do you do with the crows once you've shot them?

Don't practice until you get it right, practice until you can't get it wrong.

Eat them!  Everybody has to eat crow every once in a while!

I might try it once.

Used to love hunting crows when I was younger.  They are easy to call and decoy -ONCE!   But they are smart and learn quickly!

Hi y'all, thanks for the answers.

Yeah, know that crow is edible, as long as you cook it at the right temp. I recommend a lot of seasoning, especially cajun if you like the spice. Crow hunting is a sport I'm passionate about (I hunt pheasants too) it's very challenging and if done right, boy, a lot of action is guaranteed. It's very hard and takes time and practice to outsmart those scavengers, one little mistake you make and you better pack up all your stuff and head home because there won't be any shooting.

Note that crows, despite being considered a nuisance, are one of the smartest birds in the world, and most of the people that hunt them, do it to help out managing their population. I believe there are 3 or 4 states where season for crow is open year-round, no limit, one of them is Texas.

 Ahh for the memories.  When I was a kid ( 65-70 years ago) grain was still shocked.  My cousins would leave 1 or 2 shocked piles of oats in the field and lace it with #4 foot traps.  Once a crow was caught they would tie it down and they always had a special clearing in the woods where i would pester that crow, get it to screaming and watch the fireworks.  Crows committed suicide diving on me and those guys littered the ground with dead martyrs.  I'd love to rekindle that experience, it was a hoot.
