[wisb] Sandhill Crane Information

Since I'm sure that Bettie is ready to pounce...I thought I'd redirect folks to 
the appropriate source of information.

Kent Van Horn is the WI-DNR migratory bird staff specialist for WI-DNR Wildlife 
Management.  You can contact him by e-mail at Kent.VanHorn@xxxxxxxxxxxxx or 
give 
him a call at 608-266-8841.  The Minnesota season has nothing to do with any 
potential season in Wisconsin or on the Greater subspecies in general.  The 
Minnesota season was approved under the existing framework that applies to the 
Lesser sub-population that is already hunted in the central flyway.

A Wisconsin season would have to be approved under a USFWS framework for the 
eastern or Greater sub-population.  That framework does now exist and I believe 
that Kentucky and Tennessee are looking at potential seasons.  You'd have to 
ask 
Kent about WI.  There are no plans hard/fast plans at this time to propose a 
season that I'm aware of.

P.S. Similar to the wet summer of 2008 - Marsh Wrens have moved in across the 
street in the degraded marsh on the Yahara River.  Last night Amy and I 
listened 
to them clicking/chortling?? away at 10:30 PM under the bright moon.
