Rip Van Winkle’s Crow Killing Contest

10,000 Birds

Some people think it’s just plain fun to kill enormous numbers of animals and pile up their bodies, and when there’s no “bag limit” it’s legal to do so. A hero of the Rip Van Winkle Rod & Gun Club is – no doubt – Bob Aronsohn, who lives in Kansas and in December 2013 celebrated killing his 150,000th crow. One hopes this is the direction in which all killing contests are headed. Birding I am not anti-hunting.
