Snipe

rrbgttrrbgtt Posts: 6,753 Admiral
Have any of you started seeing many snipe?

The water is still a little high on the area I normally snipe hunt. I went out Sunday and did a lot of hard walking and only got up six birds. They got up farther away than normal or I'm shooting worse as I only hit three. two good kills and one crippled. The crippled one got away from Marly, but I guess she retrieved better than I shot.....

Hopefully as the water goes down a little more, I'll find more birds.

    I've seen them on the drained lake up here. What habitat do they like best? there is very little water where I've seen them.

    I'm sure it is but the "mud" is far and few between and it would take lots of boot leather to find/get to it. The dove are easier to find and shoot :smile

    Jumped two out of a drying up water hole on Saturday. Missed 'em both, though. Hard as heck to hit with the ought six!
