Bioman,
No offense but 15-18 lb cranes sound like the 20 lb honkers people shoot "all the time". Not very realistic.
We have been taking the measurements from the cranes we get and they are usually 9-10 lbs with some of the greaters in the 11.5-13.5 lb range. I would love to see some as large as you mentioned but I have only hunted cranes in ND...
Do you actually weigh them or is this a guesstimation? I know they are big and a blast to hunt (pretty tasty too) but I think you may have overestimated their size a bit.

Those things look like their 30lbs when they are coming by up close. I always likened them to Pterodactyl's. Especially with their eerie call when coming outta the fog.
