The Sandhill Crane
The Sandhill Crane has a gray body, with crimson on top of its head. Most live in freshwater wetlands in various flyways. They feed on plants, grains, insects and worms. They are known to dig in the soil; which can cause farmers to have significant crop damage. The life span of the Sandhill Crane is around 20 years; they weigh 6-14 pounds and have a wing span of 5-6 feet. The Sandhill Crane has keen eyesight with the ability to see four colors. They can distinguish between male and female feathers. That is why our taxidermy decoys are so effective and second to none in the hunting fields.
The Sandhill Crane is regarded to be the best eating of all migratory birds; that is why they are referred to as “The Ribeye of the Sky".
Crane Wreckers guides work tirelessly on securing the best hunting grounds for the reserved hunts. We have established great working relationships with area landowners and pay them out of the Crane Wrecker rates. We take pride in caring for their land and know that we'll be invited back to use their farmland for future hunts.
