Default Sandhill crane hunt recommendation

Got the green light to book a sandhill crane hunt for my birthday. Looking in the Lubbock area. Anyone got any experience with an outfitter? Never done this before so I know nothing about it. Tell me what you know.

Red eye outfitted! They are awesome, had a great time with them for the last few years. Colton is a great guy and eats sleeps and breaths cranes. Mike makes a good duck guide as well if you are looking for a mixed bag

X2. Stand up guys and only hire the best guides. Hunted with them several outfits around Lubbock and they are above and beyond anyone in the area! Iím hunting with them again this year middle of December to get on some crane/geese.

Eradicator on here runs some sweet hunts but he is probably booked up already for the season. He has 14k ac to run his hunts on and always finds the hot field for the best success

If you have ever heard of the show meateater, there is a great episode where Steve reneilla goes sand hill crane hunting and I believe he went with an outfitter. Might want to check it out, definitely peaked my interest.

We went with RedEye Outfitters on a late season hunt last season and put a good smack down on them.
