Free Clinic on Crow Hunting Offered -- August 8, 2009, in Holderness, N.H.

HOLDERNESS, N.H. -- Just in time for the fall crow hunting season, the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department is offering hunters a free workshop on Crow Hunting: The Forgotten Pastime on Saturday, August 8, 2009, from 9 a.m. to noon at the Owl Brook Hunter Education Center in Holderness, N.H.   The seminar will be led by crow hunting enthusiast and hunter education instructor Pete Lester. Pre-registration is required. To sign up, call Tom Flynn or Josh Mackay at (603) 536-3954.

The crow-hunting workshop covers the basic pursuit of these challenging birds, from the use of a mouth call to high-tech electronic calling and decoying. Participants also will learn about crow behavior, crow-hunting safety issues, gaining permission to hunt/landowner relations, clothing choices, set-up location, shotgun and ammunition options, creature comforts for an enjoyable hunt and recipes for -- you guessed it -- eating crow. The session will include a shooting component using Owl Brook's remote-controlled target throwers to simulate field shooting conditions.

Crow hunting has a split season in New Hampshire.  It typically opens August 15 and runs through November 30; in addition, there is a short spring season from March 16-31.
