The League of Kentucky Sportsmen and several hunters spoke in favor of the proposal. Sandhill cranes, which often have a wingspan of 6 to 8 feet, have not been hunted in Kentucky and most of the Midwest and Eastern Seaboard since the early 1900s. Popular crane viewing spots include Barren River Lake in Western Kentucky and Cecilia in Hardin County. Cranes are typically hunted for sport and for their meat.
If approved, any Kentucky hunters out there planning on trying out crane hunting?
