Idaho to Lower Number of Cranes to be Hunted

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Fewer sandhill cranes in Idaho mean fewer chances for hunters to bag the long-legged birds. The Idaho Department of Fish and Game will be taking public comment on a proposal to limit the 2013 harvest to 137 cranes and make changes to daily and seasonal limits.

The state’s changes are brought about by a decision of The Pacific Flyway Council to allocate 137 cranes for Idaho’s season. That allocation is the lowest since 1996 and lower than the 275 cranes taken by hunters last season.

The PFC sets hunting harvests each year based on the most recent three-year average number of cranes in the Rocky Mountain population. In the Pacific Flyway, more than 15,400 cranes were tallied last September, and the most recent three-year average was more than 17,900 cranes.
