HOLDERNESS — 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 on Saturday, August 10,  from 9 a.m. to noon at the Owl Brook Hunter Education Center.

The seminar will be led by crow hunting enthusiast Pete Lester. Pre-registration is required. To sign up, call (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.

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