A Sandhill Crane hunting season is proposed on the Wisconsin Conservation Congress questionnaire that will be voted on at their annual spring hearings next Monday, April 10.
This vote is the first step in proposing a hunt – a “yes” vote at these meetings is advisory only and is not final approval of a hunt. The Wisconsin State Legislature must approve a Sandhill Crane hunting season before the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources can develop a hunt.
