Awesome blind. Nothing like open country to make a few deeks stand out.

 Those clear days make for nice pictures. And there's nothing nicer than a crow sailing into range.

 Thanks Bob.

Hi Bob!

My season would be a lot better if I was retired and had more time to chase the birds! Hehehe.

I generally do the best when there is a little bit of snow on the ground and there hasn’t been much of any snow up in lower Michigan yet. So far my best shoot is 187. I wasn’t expecting to shoot more than 50ish on that hunt so it’s nice to be surprised on occasion VS that annoyed feeling when you miss the flyway by a 1/2 mile.

I hope you & Dick are still having a barrel burner of a season!

BH

Jason, I'll take 187 anytime!

The last two seasons were below par for my partner and I; but this season has been very good for the both of us.

Here are the totals for the shoots thus far for this season. 194, 289, 304, 314, 383, 353, 112, 323, 163, 191, 131, 378, 107, 84, 207, 225, 256 ( 134 in the morning and 122 in the afternoon ) 76, 101.

Hey Jason, do you ever see Joby anymore in early December in your travels?

It is a fond memory having our crow hunters banquet together back in 2013.

My path crossed with another crow hunter who ran into Joby hunting crows in Ohio a couple of seasons back.

Hi Bob,

This is the second year I have not seen Joby. I did shoot him a message to see if I would run into him this year and he said no. We didn’t chat much farther than that.

I also have fond memories of that crow hunters celebration meal. Well, all of the times we ate together were memorable, but that one was unique. I still have the signed picture in my man cave office!

If someone from Ohio was in your area I hope you told him to go home! Hehehe.

Hi Jason, I only spoke to the guy over the phone, not in person.

The area I used to hunt where I ran into you was a good area for 3 days and even though shoots of 300 to 500 were attainable it was to far to drive for me for only 3 days of shooting. I hated all the traffic in that town, bumper to bumper when you got done shooting in the late afternoon. Plus I remember many morning hunts when it was 11 or 12 degrees, at least on the afternoon shoots it warmed up and then dropped like a rock as the sun started to go down!

Good chatting with you.

Bob A.

I'd like to hear more about the crow hunters banquet & how Jason & Bob met. I like to hear stories from the old days. Paul

Paul, on the home page there is a photo of me in a green flannel shirt holding a sign that says 150,000 on it.

Click on to it and you will get all the information from that article.

Got it Bob, I'm guessing that number 150,000 was taken in Michigan & the other fella's in the photo were local crow hunter's. Other than you & Dick. Paul.

Hi Paul, none of us were from the state that photo was taken in; we were all out of state hunters at the Banquet.

Jason is from Michigan, Joby, his partner and my partner are all from Ohio. I was the only "Jayhawker" AKA Kansan at the Banquet.

Hi Paul,

Im the ugly one in the center of that "150,000" photo.

A few years prior to the crow hunters banquet, I mistakenly ran into Bob & Dick in the field. I was traveling by myself and had chatted with them the day prior but naturally we did not talk about where we were going to hunt the next day. The next morning I got into the field early because it was going to take me a while to get everything set up by myself. Well, just as I was finishing up with my rig, here comes two sets of headlights. They stop about 150 yards in front of me. "Hhmmm, that is weird" I thought to myself. I continue to put the finishing touches on my set up and the trucks are still there when I was done. So, I figured I should probably go see what is going on because I didnt want someone to crap themselves when daylight comes and I start shooting.

Ha! It was Bob & Dick! Out of all the places to hunt in the county, we set up 150 yards apart! We chatted for a brief moment then I headed back to my blind. They had me winded so I knew my shooting would be limited. I was not mad or anything, they had been hunting this area longer than I had so after this hunt I was going to let them have it and move elsewhere. Too many hunters in an area is no good for anybody. So, I sat back and enjoyed the show that Bob & Dick put on for me. I watched them kill a nice pile of birds. Even though I was not the one pulling the trigger, I was glad I got the opportunity to see those 2 in action. The whole scenario still makes me smile.

I bet that was one heck of a day for you. Like you say what are the odds of setting up a hundred and fifty yards apart. That was probably a free Crow hunting lesson for you. Thanks for sharing that story, now it all makes sense. Paul

BH and Camo,

In the second action photo with the single crow over the blind, that is the spot where Dick blew one of my speaker cords in half shooting a cripple over on the ground close to the decoy tree! Fortunately I carry an extra speaker in one of my buckets for just such a disaster. When I returned home I fixed it and that was that.
