does anyone know if there are any cranes left in SD or ND? I'm not sure if the snow we got here pushed them out. I'm planning on going up north in a week and i'm just wondering if it will be worth my time. Any info would be great.
This past weekend the group i was with hunted cranes for a couple hours and managed to scratch 5 out of the flocks, they were in northern SD, east of the missouri, and just west of HWY 281. I guess we had seen about 400
I just got back from New Mexico where I shot my first crane. The area I hunt has free crane tags with a small game license and limit of 3 per day.
Have hunted there a couple of years and this year shot my first crane. It grilled up nice.
Anyone know when the cranes will show up in the rainwater basin in Nebraska? I hear going out there in the spring for their migration back is pretty cool. If anyone knows a good time to go, that would be great.
