I'd eat anything apart from any animal or bird that eats any kind of meat. Normally with crows it's dead and decaying, rotting meat. That's what puts me of even trying them

Sory for jumping in but are you guys using pigeon magnet with black socks over the pigeons to bring in crows

Excuse my ignorance on the subject

I normally shoot rifles but farmer has asked me to help with crows

Went up last week and can't get near them

Yes mate I use a pigeon magnet with crows on it, worked a treat. But as I'm sure u know with the magnet it can go wither way so don't be scared to bring it in if they seem to be spooked by it.

Good luck mate

Sorry just re-read your post, I use pigeon decoys with black socks on as crow deeks. Then the more birds I get to ground I put a pair on the magnet and add the rest to the pattern
