Hunting season set for sandhill cranes
Minnesota will hold its first-ever sandhill crane season this fall, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources announced Monday.
The season will open Sept. 4, the same day as the early goose season. The regular waterfowl season opens at 9 a.m. on Oct. 2.
A Youth Waterfowl Hunting Day will be Sept. 18.
Final decisions about waterfowl limits and season length will be made after the Mississippi Flyway Council meetings later this month.
