Texas Sandhill Crane hunting has grown in popularity over the last ten years. Once seen as a shorebird throughout the country, the Sandhill Crane offers some exciting hunting opportunities. The Sandhill Crane averages a wingspan of four feet and can reach weights up to 18 pounds. Despite their size and crane exterior, the Sandhill offer wonderful table fare and several different cooking options. Sandhill Crane's are open for hunting from December through the end of January. The daily bag limit on Sandhills consist of two birds per person per day. Lead shot is allowed for hunting of Sandhill Cranes; however, no migratory waterfowl (ducks or geese) can be shot with lead loads. We recommend a shot size of BB or larger for Sandhill hunting. The birds will be in a good range, but Sandhills are large birds and require a large shot size to ensure success. A morning hunt for Sandhill Cranes lasts from sunrise till noon.
