    It's legal to hunt Sandhill Crane? I didn't know that. What are they hunted for? eg. meat, feathers, long legs?

    Never crane hunted myself, but lots of people around these parts do. They say that the meat is very good eating and that the birds are a lot of fun to hunt.

    We also have snipe hunting (the real kind, NOT the gunnysack, leave the nimrod in the woods variety!) Tasty little bird, often taken by waterfowl hunters as a "bonus" as they (the snipes) are found in marshy areas. I've known people who shot and ate some thinking that they were woodcock. They are similar looking birds, but found in very different types of habitat, not sure if we even actually have any huntable populations of woodcock in N. Dak.

    I have never hunted the Sandhill Crane, only seen them flying through when they migrate. Meat is supposed to be great. Me and my dad have been thinking about going after them one of these years.

    Piggy -

    A word of advice if you and yer Dad give 'em a try. Approach wounded birds with caution; their wings, beaks, and feet are FORMIDABLE weapons that they can and do use with great ferocity. One of the toughest guys I've ever known came out on the losing end of a struggle with a wounded Sandhill crane. Looked like he hed been in a good old-fashioned bar brawl.

    We have them sand hill cranes all over the place around here. They dig up the yard and make you turn the TV up so you can hear it. I have noticed that they travel in two's or three's. Looks just like a family. The kids love to feed em pieces of stale bread. They'll eat right out of your hand.

    Sage hen is the only one of those I have tasted and it is good.

    I have skinned a skunk or two and even threw a chunk of meat on the woodburner one time. Got is nice and scorched and took a bite. That stuff is bad news
