Would LOVE to use a shotgun but I would go straight to jail here for doing that.
Checked the laws,can take 24 crows a day in season and can shoot em at anytime if they are screwing with your plants or animals,or threatening to????Also legal to shoot with pellet gun and pellet guns legal to shoot here.
Well,mine are doing it and threatening to do it,so they are goners!

Heard the birds squawking.He was on the fence,got away.So next commotion took the gun but he was gone,had to unload a pellet tho....THWACK!!! Thats the most powerful pellet Ive ever shot.Need to get it sighted in,hope its close.
Did get 2 eggs he didnt,but....the ducks have completely stopped laying,bummer.
I have at times seen crows here, but just stopped for a drink and they yelled at me as I had went to garden and they did not get the water they wanted. We have magies and they would do it and li little chicks. Not many here not. I have saw more birds this spring than in years. They have taken the mulberries and last year mt touched. There is a change there soem where.
Crows are clever-ravens are even more so. I have both here. Friends in Florida have a fish pond that the local birds were enamored of. They tried everything to shoo them away. Finally talked to Fish and Game. Guy told them that fishing line strung horizontally over the pond in a grid would keep birds out. The theory is that the brid sees the grid as a solid plane. I dunno, but they claim it worked.
