Got a problem with crows? You need to set up your hide and decoys while it is still dark, and start shooting as they drop in to investigate. Tom Davies gets a full three hours of crow shooting on a Devon dairy farm ending at 8am before they work out what is going on.
Tom uses a Blaser F16 with three-quarters and full chokes, and Gamebore Clear Pigeon cartridges. Find Tom’s outfit, Dartmoor Deer Services, on Facebook and Instagram
