great catch Rog- very hard to get close to them in the day time. we used to go out at night with a bag and a stick- come to think of it we never saw them at night either

They were elusive little devils back then.;-)a Thank you, Bob.

This one normally not as much a hider as a still still and let his natural camo work. This time he was hungry. Thanks, John.

About as easy as can be in this case. Thanks, Al.

"Oh, ye of little faith. " :lol: But hang onto that gear; they have bags for shelling, bird ID books and fishing stuff out the gazoo, but I haven't seen a single snipe bag or stick!

Never having caught one, I am not sure that I even realized it was a bird :)

I always wondered why snipe hunting became such a prank, considering they're a legitimate gamebird(season usually runs alongside waterfowl season in IA). Neat little birds in any case and with the myth part thrown in there are still people who don't think they're real.

Great picture though.
