Tennessee: Limited Sandhill Crane Hunting Season Approved by State Fish and Wildlife Commission

Last Friday, the Tennessee Fish and Wildlife Commission (TFWC) approved the establishment of a sandhill crane hunting season.  Over the last three decades, the population of the sandhill crane has grown more than 300% to the point where hunters in fifteen states (AK, AZ, CO, ID, KS, KY, MN, MT, ND, NM, OK, SD, TX, UT, WY) currently enjoy being able to participate in the hunting and proper management of this abundant species.  Now, sportsmen in Tennessee will be able to enjoy this same opportunity beginning on November 28 through January 1, 2014.
