First off, are they really like a good home grown beef ribeye? Second where are good places to hunt them, I cant here in Nebraska, because when they show up here we get flocks of people from everywhere that bring there wallets. But I am interested in going on a hunt somewhere, just not sure where that is. Would prefer midwestern states as I can drive there.

I have hunted them for years in N.D. For a starting point I would hunt around Long Lake national wildlife refuge by Moffit N.D.. We would pass shoot them and did pretty good on them. We have also decoyed them with good success. About the middle of Oct is the best. I liked taking my kids there when they were off school for teachers convention normally the 3 week of Oct.

And no not a ribeye in the sky. We breast them out and ground them into pepper sticks.

They do taste like beef to me not strong at all but very lean and the older ones can be tough.

Braska just be sure and shoot the brown shaded birds, the juveniles. There is a huge taste difference between them and the prettier all grey/silver adults.
I have killed scores in our Sask camp and eaten a lot. Fix them simply and make sure you do not overcook them. To me they are far and away better tasting than any bird that flies and yes very much like rib eye.

Well better than all but eagle maybe, but people sure get wound up when you bring a limit of those in.

Yes. I used to guide some guys from that area on pheasant hunts up here. They hunted them a lot and said the panhandle of Texas was the go to place for a great hunt.

I have shot my share of them here in ND. I have even shot them flying over my yard. I will say if you mix equal parts crane, beef and pork, season it up and stuff it in a casing, then smoke it. It is almost as good as the sausage with out crane. I have never thought of a ribeye or beef when eating them. I have thought of broke lawn chair falling from the sky when shooting them though. They are usually starting to pull out about 20-23 OCt here. There will still be a few around after that, but you are past the peak by me. I shoot most mine over decoys.

Lubbock Texas. Dec, January. Book a hunt to hunt cranes over stuffed decoys in peanut fields. You'll never forget it. Eastern Colorado, no. I have shot two here my whole life. They just don't stay long enough.
