Bagged my first crane!

I found a field of thousands and thousands of cranes and was able to sneak into the field the next day before sunrise. It was really foggy that morning so my two buddies and I were able to get really close to the field even though the cranes were already landing into the field by the time we got there. When the first flight came over we managed to drop three of them. After that we were covered in Sandhills but we didn't shoot any more because we were not sure what the limit was and we didn't want to take a chance of being over. We called the DNR later that day to find out that we could have killed three a piece. That kind of sucked but we were all definately happy with the ones we killed since it was our first sandhill.

I also got my first Tundra Swan the day before our Sandhill hunt and that was pretyy awsome too.

Yes I am home...why???
We are always looking to gather information from cranes. Thought you might still be hunting. See, we are required to survey so many of them each year. Thanks, Tom
just wondering...wish I could have helped.
