    This past season it seemed that the snipe hunting was as bad as the duck hunting, at least in North Florida.

    How was it where you are?

    I found a few hot spots holding some. But it was slower than years past. Hopefully they will be down in force this year. They will make anyone look bad.:D

    Found tons of Snipe. Only problem is that everyone else found them too.:(

    I think with the fair to poor duck hunting around here, most guys gave in to snipe hunting earlier in the season than normal. By the time I started chasing the little buggers most were shot out. I had cases where a field of 200 birds would get up and leave when you were still 50 yards or more away. Too much hunting pressure.

    During out SDH hunt/get-together I lead some of the boys to a decent snipe spot. We had a great time and missed alot of snipe.:D

    You talking about Hatbill? There are some great areas there if you're willing to work a little. Even managed to find some great concentrations of birds there the last weekend of season - enough to get 4 limits. But we had to work for 'em. :D

    It wasn't actually Hatbill............the water was still a little to high by that time. We were off Salt Lake and found some drained areas that were still a bit wet. The snipe were in there pretty thick. Problem was that it wasn't that big.
