I agree. Wisconsin is over due for a season on the cranes. I have always wanted to hunt them and think that the population is stable enough for hunters to be allowed 1 or 2 birds a season. I think we need to get a season going. With a little work we could all get together and mabey get a season going.
Hello and good hunting to all

I dont think a crane season would hurt either. Who knows in a few years we may be busting some of the weird sounding things.

There should not only be a season on cranes but swans would be nice too. Even if each hunter had to buy a tag or get in a lottery system or something. I think both would be a blast to hunt. There are seasons for swans and cranes further west so why not wisconsin?
why have a mud motor when you could have an airboat?

crane season

Postby fishmunkee » Thu Oct 20, 2005 1:05 pm

I asked a warden at the state fair exhibit about a crane season a number of years ago. He told me it is unlikely there will ever be one as the population of cranes that live and migrate thru Wis is seperate from the population they hunt west of here. How true this is, I don't know, it's just what he told me. I, for one, would like to start hunting them as I generally see more of them than any other waterfowl lately.

Wisconsin is one of the only states with both Whoopers and sandhills nesting here. I think the season would be doubtful because of the fact someone might mistake a pure white crane for a brownish gray one. Just like someone mistakes a huge swan for a snow goose that rarely frequents wisconsin. Just my .02. We should just be happy that we got dove season.
