Crow hunting is a great warmup for doves
Dove hunting season begins in less than a month, and crow hunting is a great way for North Carolina hunters to practice their shotgunning skills. These birds present challenging shots for hunters, and can also help them hone their camouflaging skills.
Crow season is split in North Carolina. The current one opened on Aug. 5 and runs through Feb. 27 on Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday of each week. Crow hunting is also allowed on all major federal holidays. It comes in again June 2 through July 31. The 2020 opening day of dove season is Sept. 5, giving hunters plenty of time to break in a new shotgun or hone their skills with their old reliable.
Aside from presenting a challenging hunt, crows do a lot of damage to agricultural crops. And they put a beating on songbirds and more desirable gamebirds.
Crows may seem slow, dumb, and easy to shoot. But as this video with Carolina All Out shows, that’s not the case at all. You’ll be raring to go after watching this video!
