    Looking to hunt sandhill cranes

    Since fire season interrupted deer and elk season for me, I want to plan a hunt for sandhill cranes. Thinking 3 or 4 days. And three people if anyone has connections or knows a good outfitter I'm all ears.

    If it were me I'd be looking towards North West Texas. North of Abilene is a major migration route. Used to see them by the hundreds in harvest fields.

    You could try Waterfowl Haven Outfitters in Kersey, CO. I looked into going out with them last year in late October when the birds were coming through our area. I couldn't make that trip due to work travel, but I plan on going out this year. When the birds are in, they are in, and they nail them pretty good.

    The guy from Waterfowl Haven got himself into some shit. Probably not going with him. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&sour...N0U7C7sOG0n06Q

    Besides, anyone with that many Craigslist ads should be a no-go...

    I was going to agree that there's a bunch that come through eastern Colorado in October.

    I had one on a beaver pond in the mountains last weekend actually.

    HMF - that's pretty crazy. I've actually had some pretty good luck with the semi-sketchy CL hunt ads, but I'm glad you cued me in on that. Now that they are out, Im looking for an outfitter as well....

    Itís my understanding that Saskatchewan is a good option. Iím going in a couple weeks. Itís a duck/goose/crane hunt. Iím not organizing the trip, so I donít have all the details.

    So the going rate seems to be 300-350. I've seen some combos at decent prices, which i might have to go for. Im thinking three days should be good especially to limit out
