The Sandhill Crane hunt in Kentucky is over for the season and only fifty birds were killed. While fifty dead birds is still fifty too many, it is better than the 400 that could have been killed under the rules of the hunting season.  The Courier-Journal, Kentucky’s largest newspaper, excoriated the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources for allowing the hunt to happen in this editorial.
