Subject: [wisb] Re: Conservation Congress Hearings
Can someone help me understand the interest in hunting Sandhills? I do
not have a problem with hunting per se, but I am also not a hunter, so
perhaps I just don't get it -- is this a trophy, or are people
actually eating Sandhill Cranes (or maybe something else)?

I’ve attended the Jefferson County hearings for 25 years or more and usually speak up once or twice, especially to counter incorrect information. Only once, during the Mourning Dove vote, did we ever have more than about 100 attendees, usually fewer (there were 600 at the Mourning Dove meeting).
