Maryland's crows season starts 15 Aug 2005 and I can't wait !!! I know I know its not the same a Dove or goose season but its been a long off season and I just looking forward to getting some wing shooting in. I've ripped (with the help of a computer geek) a whole bunch of crow calls to my MP3 player and I bought a battery powered horn speaker that plugs into the headset jack of the MP3. It seems to work pretty in my back yard. Can't wait to try it out. I plan on using the NEF 12ga with the pollychoke encase the shooting stitution changes as I'm hunting. I have a 40+ acres cut wheat field to hunt.
