    Why do you need a guide? Just drive around farms with grain field and corn fields till you see lots of crows. Ask the farmer if you can shoot the crows and go to it.

    I never understood the whole guided hunt thing. How much satisfaction do you get by someone else finding your game for you and bascially setting the whole scenerio where all you do is shoot the game? I have achieved the greatest satisfaction with even the smallest whitetail's i have taken for the simple fact i did it ALL on my own. Found the hunting spot, scouted and found the best stand location and then hunted it until i had success. Trophies are in the eyes of the beholder.

    well- good point, but when we travel to hunt, i dont like to waste time scouting and asking---i deal with farmers everyday and have lined up many shoots where i live ( we had 1.3 million snow geese in the area last year, the best spots are always spoken for) -sometimes you just want it all done and only worry about 'shooting"!!

    Where ever you go take some of those french fri holders from McDonalds with you. About the best bait you can get.

    I don't know if we have any guides for that here in Delaware, but most of the produce farmers here will almost pay you to shoot them due to the crop damage this time of year. I just bought an electronic caller and some decoys. I turned the machine on and had crows overhead in 3 minutes. But they are smart. There is a Crowbusters group near here and they welcome new guys.

    Walpole Island, Ont, Canada. 30 minutes from Detroit. Millions of crows. Farmers will allow (actually encourage) you to hunt their land or the Indian guides provide excellent service. You can not carry enough shells to last all day. Marc

    You can also look for public lands that border private agricultural lands. With a good loud electronic caller, I've brought crows in from a long ways off.

    Make damn sure you shoot the scout crow. Don't let him get suspicious and report back.

    I also find a caller that has a crow-owl fight works great. Switch back and forth between it and crow distress. I also use a dummy owl with a dummy crow "ddead" at its feet, with the speaker hidden close by, buried in brush. This really gets them riled up.

    We have a season on them here in Oregon. I shoot Stralings ( 10,000 plus rpounds per year) because they can be shot year round and are the closest thing to a duck as far as angles and speed of flight. Jeff

    Where the heck are you shooting starlings at? I never see them outside of the cities.

    I believe starlings are an alien species to the US and you can shoot them anywhere it is legal to be shooting. When we raised pheasants, they would get in the pen through the fence by the hundreds. Get back from church and let them have it. Very few could get back out.
