I can't understand hunting at all killing for pleasure to me is just wrong ? But what pleasure can be had from shooting a crane? Surely it requires very little skill,so what challenge does it even give ? i think these people are very sad!

Just googled this insanity to find out if anyone actually eats crane. Here's a quote from a website that shall remain unnamed:

"Cook it the same way as you would bald eagle, hawk, whooping crane, pelican or red cockaded woodpecker. "

Idiots.

I believe the quote embedded in your quote was "tongue in cheek" just to show how crazy eating any of these birds is or would be!

Not too sure about that. I hang around a lot of hunters. Many of them like to kill stuff. Period.

That quote is a lot like the "bad joke" that circulates around over here in the states, viz. "What does a SPOTTED OWL taste like?" "It tastes a lot like a Bald Eagle!".

I guess you can take this either way, but I tend to view it as "you should not be disturbing these threatened/protected birds in any way, most of all you should not be killing them!

Yes, you can take it either way. And then they drive past you in a monster truck with a trailer loaded full of ATV's and a bumper sticker that reads: "Diesel Smoke Makes Me Horny."

Then you have to sort of face reality.
