Estancia valley crane hunt

Postby PeterJarmo » Fri Oct 11, 2013 8:57 pm

So I put in for the estancia crane hunt as my 3rd choice and drew it, usually wouldn't put in in if I didn't know the area but my available dates were limited so I figured it was better than nothing...
Any tips anyone cares to share? seems like mostly private land and not much water. Is it all about getting trespass access or are there any public lands out there with cranes?
Thanks for any ideas

Don't know about up there, but for the SW hunt you just go knock on doors. Pretty easy to get permission down south.

Yeah that what I'm thinking is going to happen. I went scouting some open gate land out there with some corn fields but it was just one of many many corn fields so I guess I'll just have to see where the cranes are on a given day and knock on the door...

I also drew for the crane hunt in Estancia Valley. Looks like I may have to do some scouting to become familiar with it. I also drew for the pheasant hunt in Huey.
