So more and more lately I have seen Ravens (big sob's, not little crows) on and around my property. The last pig I killed left a big blood puddle, and they were gathered around it sipping it up like they were at a wine tasting. I hear them all the time, and wonder if I need to get rid of them or just treat them like any other bird.

So whats the deal? Any downside to them being around? Any different than the buzzards that clean up our gut pile? Voodoo? Diseased?

Ask your question again after you've watched them eat thru a nest of duck eggs, or quail eggs & hatchlings . . . .

Yea thats the kind of stuff I was looking for. I have never seen one of these guys till about 5 yrs ago, all of a sudden they are everywhere I go. See em at work, at home, on the ranch. Maybe I just wasnt looking but then someone said "Shoot every one you see" and hence the question.

Haha...yea like I said, big suckers. Almost as big as the vultures when they are all together, not nearly as ugly though, kinda bad [censored] to be honest. But if there is a reason to get rid of them.....

I do believe that ravens are protected period, just like hawks, you can't kill them.

Funny how we dislike other predators that are in competition with us, but welcome predators that aren't.
