    Went out to screw around at the farm we have permission to hunt. While there is a pond there, waterfowl aren't around on any kind of a regular basis....although we did hear wood ducks during deer season, lol.

    Anyway, we were driving by the neighbor's place on the way in, and there were three sandhills on his hill, just up from his pond. Me and the boy can shoot five between the two of us, but I doubt we ever see them around again. First time we've seen cranes on the ground, anywhere around here .

    Sis said she seen about a dozen sitting in a corn field just off hwy 431 north of Lewisberg, Ky a couple weeks ago. I guess when they get tired or hungry they may land anyplace and eat and rest. I hear them fly over from time to time both spring and fall but as usual with Sandhill's unless they have a regular refuge stop they are up there with jet liners most of the time.

    A few years ago I started riding a desk most of the day...I miss a lot of things about outdoor work but I really miss hearing those things pass through in November.

    Once heard it is a sound you will never forget. I waterfowl hunted a lot on a Indiana F&W area where 20 to 30 thousand made a stop migrating in both directions.
