Sandhill Crane Hunts



The sun coming up over a playa and thousands of sandhill crane flying in from feeding in a grain field is an unforgettable sight. Our crane hunts are conducted in fully enclosed A-frame style blinds or layout blinds. Hunters are typically gunning over only a few dozen decoys.

Sandhill Crane Season

Sandhill Crane hunts are typically done the first 3 weeks of November. The season lasts longer in this area, but they are usually south of our hunting grounds in December.

Hunting Conditions

Hunts are conducted in fully enclosed A-frame style blinds or layout blinds. Deception Decoys are the only decoys we used for our crane hunts.

Did You Know?

Did you know that sandhill cranes are considered the “rib eyes of the sky”! They are fine table fare and our guides will love to show you their favorite cleaning, preparation, and cooking methods as with any game.

Tule Creek Acreage

Playa lakes of the High Plains are temporary wetlands that play a crucial role in the migration of up to 2 million waterfowl each year. Playas are very wide-ranging, and all vary from one to another. Most are relatively shallow, but cover and vegetation are diverse.

Land & Game Experts

Experienced guides with a string of seasoned pointers (for pointing birds) and labs (for flushing and retrieving) make for a great experience afield. During almost every hunt you will hear someone say, “Wow! I just like being out here to watch the dogs work.”
