Rochester is overrun, we hear, and we are here to help. Equipment matters, but it's all about attitude.

Crows are beautiful intelligent birds,leave them alone! People who brag about how adept they are at killing intelligent species like crows are mentally warped in my opinion.

Hey....come on down and walk in all their "crap" on the sidewalks and clean it all off of your car and you'll soon change your mind!

As someone who has to walk on sidewalks downtown that are literally covered edge-to-edge with crow dropping everyday, I applaud any and all efforts to get rid of them.

Dennis, I can see it now. The mayor is obviously ready to spend some money to eliminate the problem. It's time to start the Rochester "Crow Days Celebration"! There could be a parade, crow floats and costumes, a crow queen (only nuns over 75 could compete in the talent division, swatting knuckles with a ruler), a dance of course where we could flock together (black tie only), crow calling contests (senior, junior, male and female divisions), crow coloring contests for the youngsters (the color black not allowed), crow eating contests (that's one that I already qualify for), free drinks made with "Old Crow" (photo I.D will be checked at the door and supervised by a Republican), city provided decoys and shells for participants, maps to hunting sites where land owners have granted permission to hunt and have spread liberal amounts of corn laced "sunshine" (sunshine provide by the Democrats), prizes for the most crows shot in a day, week, or month, biggest crow, littlest crow, etc, 21 crow pie baking contests, crow poetry contests “Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered weak and weary. . .” quote the crow (ok, so it was a raven that said that). Mayor, it's time to think outside of the box.

The joy you take in killing is really sad.

You are truly jerks to do this. Get a life.

We were out this weekend and only got a couple. It feels good to get back out there and get the dust off of the guns. I even hugged a few trees just to make sure they were happy too.
