Dayammm!....I leave early this morning to go check on the cranes again and you guys go crazy with the posting again! I'll never get caught back up here! Don't any of you guys ever have to work?!
Joe (JPH), if you landed in El Paso, I'm not surprised that you weren't too impressed with this part of the country. El Paso gives you a glimpse of what our desert country is like, but all of the good stuff is up here in New Mexico!
Steve, we used to have a similar situation with the Whoopers....we had just enough of them around to cause problems with the crane hunts here. The Whoopers aren't here anymore, and the crane hunts are becoming more liberal, although they are still very restricted considering we have thousands of them here in the winter. They are unique and interesting birds, for sure, but the farmers here hate 'em....just too many of them around here this time of year. If you want to hunt 'em, come on down!
....The rest of you guys on here,....slow down!.....I'm tryin' to catch up!
