Thumbs up Antis -vs- Hunters: Online Poll

Below you'll find a link about a hunting issue in MN where they're considering a season for sandhill crane hunting. Please don't confuse them with the whooping crane! Anyway, from what I hear, the sandhill crane is very fine eating. The "Ribeye from the sky".

Like in many instances where there is hunting involved, the antis are right there trying to limit or take away our hunting privileges. Below you will find a link to an online poll about whether you think it should be allowed or not. It requires only a simple vote: "Yes" or "No". After that you can view the poll results.

Outdoor News Sandhill Crane Hunting Debate: Yes or No?

Right now the antis are ahead in the poll and your hunting vote would be appreciated. It's towards the top on the right hand side.

Thanks,

It's now 50/50. Educate me please... Why would someone want to hunt Sandhill Crane? Does it have something to do with keeping their numbers low so they don't hit planes or something like that? They don't look to be very good eating.

SWThomas,

Good question. I don't know about their numbers, but I was for it because it's something hunters elsewhere had the luxury or privilege to hunt. I also hear that they are very good eatin'.... hence the term "Ribeye from the sky". Actually the more common term is "Rib eye in the sky"... referring to it's good eating.

Also, I found a link that's from a hunter's point of view why he hunts them. Talks about how big they are and saw in another post elsewhere about how hard they are to bring down. I guess that makes sense when they are as tall as a man. LOL!

They are very good eating. Soups, stews, roasted breast, BBQed, and jerky just to name a few. Just breast out the crane and use any goose/duck recipe.
Plus, there is something to be said about shooting a 5ft tall bird.
