Hunters (SW Oklahoma) discovered four (4) Whooping Cranes that had been shot and now the OFWC & USFS is investigating. If some commercial outfitter is found to be responsible, IMO they should be quartered and drawn.

Hard to imagine it being a mistake four times plus ditching them. Whoever did that needs caught.
They knew they'd done wrong.
That's a paddlin.

The difference between Sandhills and Whoopers is markedly striking.

Not in the juvenile phase I believe. Mortal fear kept us from shooting even Sandhills unless they were standing. Using buckshot was legal I believe.

You'd be surprised how efficient the USFS is at finding outlaws when it comes to these kinds of violations of protected federal species... Those responsible will get their just desserts.

if just one of them had a smartphone on them, then it shouldn’t be rocket science.

For anyone interested, I've trying to stay up to date on this one, but doesn't seem there is any news yet.

There is still a reward out for any information.
