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?
