Who is a criminal crow running from? The cawps. Not everyone thinks shooting down crows is funny. According to US News, a Vermont hunting club has cancelled its crow shooting competition after a social media outcry.
Mark McCarthy, president of the Boonie Club in Williamstown, told the Burlington Free Press it will not be sponsoring the April 7 crow shoot, in which teams of hunters would have competed to win prizes by shooting the most birds. Critics of the shoot say they understand “hunting for food” but are against “wanton killing.”
Ok, how about this one. Where do crows go to get drunk? A crow bar. Yep.
Crow shoots are legal as long as they’re within the hunting season for crows. Scott Darling, wildlife program manager for Vermont Fish and Wildlife, says while there is a role for crow hunting to fend off damage to crops, he does not support crow shoots like the one the club had planned.
They may not be a delicacy but they are most definitely destructive to crops. To be honest, shooting crows is one hellava good time. Do Vermonters really need another reason?
