I've been involved in taking some people on snipe hunts and I'd like to see who's got the best "Snipe" hunting story out there. If you have never been snipe hunting or ever even heard of it ask a buddy to take you. trout

Snipe are good eating and fun to hunt. Just wish they were bigger, more meat and maybe I wouldn't miss as much.






And snipe and woodcock are not the same.

In West Virginia, moonlit nights were the best for snipe hunting. You sent folks into the woods to sit beside a rotten stump with a swatting stick and a baggy.

My dads brother took me when I was no more than 5-6 up in the mountains of Colorado. I had no idea where I was except next to a very old cemetery in the middle of now where. It was a long couple hours that they left me their.

I did get one of my friends last year, we where out at my land and he had the flash light and trash bag, I dropped him off a mile or so from my place next to a hole in the fence off a big field. Left him there for about 45 mins before everyone started feeling bad for him. He actually had some hogs walk really close to him, some alcohol was involved and he wasn't too happy about the joke but everyone else got a good laugh.
