Wing Shooting | Sandhill Crane Hunt

The opportunity to hunt Sandhill Cranes is rare and special. The harvest of their meat offers a culinary experience unparalleled and is something to be cherished. For this reason, Spoke Hollow travels to the Texas high plains a limited number of times a year to hunt these birds. We invite you to join us, along with our friends Taner and Blaine McNabb, for a unique experience with big rewards.

Sandhill Cranes

Sandhill cranes are some of the oldest living birds on Earth with fossils dating back 2.5 million years. These tall, gray-bodied, red-capped birds can reach a height of 3 to 4 feet with wingspans of 6 to 7 feet. They group in large numbers and are found in open wetlands, fields, and prairies across North America.
