ARTICLE from the Summer 2006 Issue

Beware of Wildlife “Introductions”

We are all for introductions, when the goal is not to populate the species into a huntable commodity.

Wildlife “introductions” sound wonderful as touted by the large environmental groups and hunting organizations, but there is a hidden agenda that needs to be exposed.

That agenda is ultimately trapping or hunting yet another species. Think of it as developing a new product, sometimes a retro product.

Much is being made of a pair of whooping cranes that hatched two chicks in central Wisconsin, marking the first young of the species to be hatched in the wild in the eastern US in more than 100 years.

The report states that Operation Migration is trying to build the flock. Most people could never imagine that hunters would want to kill graceful cranes, but the public needs to think again.

The Sandhill Crane has been developed into a prime huntable species in certain states. The following is from the US Fish & Wildlife Service website: http://www.fws.gov/migratorybirds/issues/SandhillCrane/
SandhillCraneHunters.htm

Many species of birds are commonly encountered while hunting Sandhill Cranes near wetlands and associated upland feeding and resting areas. Some species of birds that associate with Sandhill Cranes (e.g., waterfowl) can be hunted legally in some areas. However, hunters should consult state regulations for additional information on season dates, areas, and other regulations governing take of these species.

Federally protected migratory birds which may not be taken, possessed, transported, sold or bartered include all migratory birds as defined and protected under federal law.

These species include, but are not limited to, trumpeter swans (Central Flyway only), whooping cranes, cormorants, bitterns, grebes, herons, kingfishers, loons, pelicans, gulls, shore birds, eagles, falcons, hawks, and owls.

It is the responsibility of all hunters to be able to identify species legal to hunt and not attempt to shoot any protected species. It’s the law!
