Kent Outdoors has been chasing Crows for over 10 years. We have successfully harvested several thousand birds. One thing to take into consideration is that we are hunting wild and not pen raised birds!
They are very weary and will test your skill as a shooter. We also have to deal with factors such as rain, fog, high winds and at times running into an area with call shy birds, all of which unfortunately we have no control over. But after you have been on a hunt with us and experienced the wing shooting action like many of my clients have you will be hooked on “Crow Hunting”!
The first crows usually begin to show up about the middle of September as the first cold fronts of the fall start to pushing South and the pecans start falling from the trees. In Texas there is no season on Crows. When shooting crows in Texas for crop damage purposes you can shoot an unplugged shotgun and there is no limit!
We start our Crow hunts just before sunrise (similar to a duck hunt). We will hunt them for several hours but usually stop around 11 o’clock as you start seeing a decrease in the number of new birds and birds we have previously called in will come back for a second look but have been educated and keep their distance. This is when it is time to pick up and get some lunch.
The Hunts will take place near the Lake Texoma area. This includes the Red River. We will meet at the Ranch and then go from there. As there is an abundance crows here around the property we might start here and move to other locations if we need to.
The only license needed for Crow hunting is a standard Texas hunting license.
All hunts are morning hunts which includes a guide, decoys, and a great location.
We typically like to have a maximum of not more than 3 hunters per guide.
