Sandhill Cranes Matsu
Where is a good place in the Mat-su area for a total newbie to go for Sandhill cranes? Also, when in the year do you go? I havent bird hunted except for grouse.
Cranes are found where ever they are - usually in a grassy area where they can find their food. You can see cranes out on the Hayflats at any time of the summer or fall. They can also be found in farmers fields around the Mat-Su, but they are almost never found in the same place twice.
They will start flocking up and migrating through in September. The season opens on September 1 with waterfowl and other migratory birds.
