Tennessee: Sandhill Crane Hunting Season to be Considered
Recently, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service proposed a 60-day sandhill crane hunting season in Tennessee. This is the second time in three years the Tennessee Fish and Wildlife Commission will consider a sandhill crane hunting season. If approved, Tennessee would be the second state east of the Mississippi River to allow sandhill cranes to be hunted. In 2011, Kentucky considered and adopted a similar proposal and sportsmen have been able to hunt two years, of the three season experiment.
Hum ,,that's pretty weird. There are areas that once were traditional haunts for Sandhills that have hardly any now. Why not just capture the ones in over populated areas and move them to areas where there scarce? Instead of hunting them and endangering/harassing other endangered crane species in those areas?
That seems like a better idea to me, and a better way to restock sparse areas and limit them in overpopulated areas.
Oh well,,,what do I know?
