Saturday marks the season opener for hunters lucky enough to draw a special permit to hunt Montana’s Rocky Mountain populations of Sandhill Crane.
The leggy birds have a distinctive warbling call that can be heard for miles and several pounds of red meat that prompt fans of their flesh to dub them “Ribeye of the Sky.”
Hunting begins Saturday for the pacific flyway cranes in Hill, Choteau, Cascade, Meagher, Park and all counties west of those listed. Hunting in eastern states for Central Flyway birds begins Sept. 30. While applications for permits to hunt in western districts were due July 27, over the counter opportunities exist in the Central Flyway. Check Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks waterfowl hunting regulations for more information.
