Heard it tastes better than owl but not as good as eagle. ;)

Actually its almost identical to piegon or dove......  Had it many times,  very dary meat with a strong (not bad) flavor.  slightly larger then dove but not much,  they (like owl)  are mostly feathers!.....   Only downside is the same as mature piegons.   some are EXTREMLY tough (older birds)     Have fun,  crow hunting is always  a blast!

WNV can be present in any bird.  you don't get it by ingesting it.  it must go through the mosquito.

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Some wild birds are also part of the life cycle of "possum poop" EPM equine protozoal myleoencephalitis disease. It is devastating to most horses.  That's why horse people hate possums! (well, besides being ugly & stinky..)  J

Josh, if you're really going to go crow hunting, its actually a lot of fun. Use decoys and a crow call, but remember wild crows and city crows aren't the same bird by a long shot. The wild ones are much smarter. Practice around the house with the crow call, you'll be amazed and entertained when the crows come on in and circle you and even land close by.

A crow is about the same size as a pigeon so I'd dress it out the same.  Just pluck away the breast feathers and cut away the breast, heart, and gizzard, there isn't enough meat on the remainder of the bird to be worth eating.   Remember it takes Four and Twenty to make a pie. :catchchick: :camp:

The older the bird the tougher it is so only shoot the young ones.

I remember on Hee Haw one time Grandpa Jones was doing his "hey grandpa what's for supper" skit and it was crow neck and rutabagas. Yum Yum!

I love rutebegas! :-D When the day care kids would ask what's for lunch I'd always say "dog barf & beans, slugbutt muffins & goose poop salad"!  Specially when I was making something they really liked! I know...I warped the leaders of tomorrow... :roll:  J
