Yeah, they don’t taste like any bird you have ever eaten. They are grain eaters and you can tell.

I believe that they are opportunistic feeders, eating more than just grain.

I have never eaten one but have heard they taste anywhere from pork chop to rib eye. Imagine such depends much upon how prepared, while also much upon what one prepared primarily consumed. Only one way to know for sure..

Just drove by a cut cornfield on Cumberland parkway and sand hills all over. A bunch. Never seen them there before and I’ve been traveling it for 7 years.

Drove all around barren yesterday and saw none. Single flew over the house an hour or so ago. Never seen a single all by itself before.

Do be careful with crane ID. I saw three mature Whoopers in West Ky the other day Pure white except for wing tips and easy ID but the immature greys could accidentally be confused with Sandhills.
