If you are interested, contact the MDNR Wildlife Division and ask for specifics on their timeline toward opening a season, since it will likely be in the U.P.

House of Representatives pass Resolution 154, requesting that the Michigan NRC act to place sandhill cranes on the game species list.  Should this happen, then the next step would be to request USFWS season structure recommendations.  USFWS has already approved seasons for Tennessee and Kentucky, within the Mississippi Flyway.

Sandhill cranes are more difficult to kill than a turkey, very wary, with excellent eyesight.
