    Did you notice Pett's cartoon? All the bird watchers were clean shaven and happy looking, and the hunter was depicted as a disheveled bum smoking a cigarette.

    I guess all us slovenly hunters can find a better way to spend a dollar day, rather than buy a copy of their liberal drivel.

    Interestingly, there was nothing in the C-J about it. They ran a letter against it a week or so ago and thats it.

    Crane season passed today - makes KY the first state E of the MISS to have a season. :)

    on kentucky.com (The Lexington Herald Lie-der) you can find the article. Predictably the anti-hunters are responding with names and ignorance. I had to jump in and make a post just to stir things up.

    It is not a done deal yet. The regulations has to clear the Legislative Regulation Review Committee first. You can bet the anti's are gonna work this hard. EVERYONE needs to call the legislative members on this committee and voice their opinion

    Everyone does need to support this and call. Don't give the anti hunters an opprotunity to restrict our sporsmans rights.

    I went to the LRC page, and couldn't find that committee...is it the Administrative Regulation Review Subcommittee, and if not, do you have a link to the one you are talking about. I'm a registered lobbyist for my job, so theres not a lot I can really do with this, but I will put it out for others to call about, if you can get me a list of the committee members.

    If its the other, they meet on 6/14 at 1 pm in room 149 of the Annex.

    I can't help but wonder if Indiana will follow suit since the sandhill's that pass thru Kentucky for the most part spend a lot of time in the fall up in northwest Indiana at Jasper Pulaski fish and wildlife area. If they don't there are going to be some ticked off hunters up there. Used to hunt ducks and geese there and those sandhill's were there in the thousands each fall. And protected to the max....they would darn near put you under the jail if you shot one.

    Link to site of the Fish and Wildlife area where they stop on migration each direction.

    Looks like they'd be like eatin' a "shikpok", all wings , long legs , neck and beak.

    There is a reason they are referred to as: "Ribeye in the Sky". They don't have a very large breast, but it is VERY good tablefare.

    You'd like it!!!

    I wish they migrated through here. I'd work a couple of them over.

    You hear a few flock pass thru here in the fall....it would take a fighter jet tho to get to em....they do tend to fly a bit high when moving.

    About the only way anyone is going to get into them is find were they roost for the night and follow them to where they feed during the day and ambush them there. They do a sprial flight out of their refuge quite high before moving out then sprial back down when going to roost. With the sizes of the flocks I have seen up north a fellow would go broke if they tried to buy enough crane decoys to make them even give you a second look.

    I would bet there will not be enough killed in Ky season to fill a short bed pickup
