Lawmaker proposes a season on Sandhill Cranes
I don't know who is counting those damn things but 20,000 statewide seems awfully low unless SE Shawano County has 95% of the population. 25 years ago we'd see one or two on 250 acres maybe 5 times a year. Now we'll see 200-300 multiple times a month. With corn prices rising due to the push for corn based fuel it sucks when you have to buy corn for feed because 70%-80% of your crop is wiped out in the spring by these damn things. A potential season on Wolves gets the most publicity but Cranes are a much bigger problem for more farmers.
