    Crow hunting in Ireland

    I went out about a month ago with a mate who had recently bought a Winchester SX4. It was a typical Irish day with sunny spells mixed in with heavy showers. The crows & ferals pigeons decoyed pretty steady in the morning but tailed off in the early afternoon.

    Ended up with a decent bag of birds despite some of the poor shooting and a new gun well christened.

    That looks like a or of fun.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Do you eat the crows mate?

    I seen a thing on food channel in the states where they were shooting them and they had a feed of crow afterwards.

    No, I've never been brace enough to eat them. Those who have been brave enough to eat them have said they are really not nice.

    I always decoy with trap cartridges; so 7 1/2 28g. As long as the ranges are kept sensible these shells will do the job.
