Alabama's First Sandhill Season in 103 Years Deemed Success

Another warm winter left Alabama’s duck hunters frustrated, but those who were lucky enough to score permits for the first sandhill crane season in the state in 103 years were elated. Although not all of the 400 crane permit holders were able to harvest one of the large birds, those who did raved about the new hunting opportunity. Jason Russell of Gadsden, Alabama, and his 17-year-old son, Grayson, both drew permits, which allowed a harvest of three birds each.
