New Berlin, Wis. –-( The phrase ‘eating crow’ is about to enact a literal meaning as Scott Leysath is going to change a popular myth about the black-flying scavenger.

Sportsman Channel, the leader in outdoor television for the American Sportsman, is taking viewers to the Deep South for an unforgettable journey of Dead Meat.  Leysath and his friends will give viewers an ‘A to Z’ education on harvesting and preparing crow for consumption in Georgia and South Carolina. Tune in for an epic hunting and culinary adventure with Dead Meat on Sunday, February 10 at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT.

Crow’s are typically associated with death, scavenging, bad luck and leaving a foul taste in your mouth when eaten. Leysath’s first stop is Milledgeville, GA where he and his fellow hunters set up their blinds for a successful crow hunt that yields forty birds. Cleaning out a crow does not include the usual steps of most birds and Leysath is happy to diagram the basics of preparing the bird for consumption. After consuming the crow, Leysath travels to South Carolina to the Charleston Bay Gourmet restaurant to seek out the advice from another chef on preparing a crow for a different flavor.

“I must admit, after trying the crow with breadcrumbs in Georgia, it was fairly neutral in taste and a little chewy,” said Scott Leysath, Host of Dead Meat. “When my friends in South Carolina got their hands on the meat, they add their own twist and let a few customers sample the meat which garners more than a few interesting expressions.”

    1. Crows are important for cleaning up the earth. Im not sure why you find it important to shoot everything that breathes, just because you can. Come on guys, a little less sporting and more saving our country from the Global elite. Your children’s children will thank you.

    2. LOL! I wish I had known back in the 70’s that eating crow would make a good magazine article! My first experience with calling crows was VERY productive and over a period of time, I almost felt guilty for killing so many so I breasted a few of them out and baked them and it was damned good! After that, we had crow every week or so.

    3. Killing of crows and many other birds in SC are now illegal. Never mind if they eat up your crops. Just as criminals, they now have more rights than we do.
