For those looking to challenge up your waterfowling desires, look no further than hunting sandhill cranes. Not only are these birds the best waterfowl to hit the dinner table, but the cranes are very fun birds to hunt. Sandhill Cranes are very wary birds. Perfect concealment and decoy placements are a must to fool these birds. When everything is set up just right you will experience some of the most exciting waterfowl hunting there is to be had. They stand 3-4 feet tall and have wingspans approaching 7 feet.
