  • Hunters find challenge in sandhill cranes

    Larry Dreamis Hill failed in his quest to take a bird during Kentucky’s inaugural sandhill crane hunting season but says it wasn’t for lack of effort.
    “These birds were extremely challenging and seemed to change their patterns a little every day. I really enjoyed the challenge and look forward to future seasons of pursuing this bird. I remember when the first sandhill cranes showed up in Cecilia years ago now I have the opportunity to hunt them. It’s very exciting,” said Hill, Cecilia’s retired fire chief.
