    Exactly what came to my mind! I was duped as a young un!
    I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me.

    I used to be a big time river duck hunter in my younger years. I would be on the water way before sunrise. On most mornings before or right at sunrise I would almost always see a snipe or woodcock fly by at rocket speed. That usually signaled that the ducks would be next.

    a few folks tried to get me into some night hunts on them , but they didn't know who they was dealing with .
    even when I was real young I was tuned in pretty hard to ketchn things and just knew it was some kind a bla bla bla

    Love snipe hunting (real ones). I hunt a cow pasture, right, next to a major creek where it feeds a river, for doves and the snipe come in there during their migration. On damp years they'll be in there running around in flocks of 8-10 for about 4 days on their migration. It's such a blast to walk them up, they get up and if they are too far they just fly about 30 yards and land again. Eventually they flush within range and I'm able to down one on the first shot... after that they look like a bunch of rocket ships. They'll still just go down to the end of the pasture and land though, and in 10-15 minutes I can go walk them up again. But when they aren't flocked up, they'll still fly by when we are dove hunting. We have to use steel shot for them in Iowa so I always have a couple boxes of steel in the truck to switch over to if there are snipe around that day.

    Good eating too, never know the difference between them and a dove. I just jalapeno popper them the same way.

    My family tradition in south Georgia, blessed to give every boy child a 410 shotgun on his 8th birthday and expect them to shoot doves by his 9th. I've been a bird hunter for more than 54 years. I Love bird hunting. Since I got old enough not to want to set decoys at 3:00 am.. Snipe shooting.. Quick as doves,flush like quail (15 yards away) and fast as teal...gotta love them birds!

    I had to grin at this one, for the shady sake. I remember me and a couple buddies gonna pull the trick on my brother. Boy he showed us, he had a lot of quit in him, he beat us back to the house. And not because he knew it was a trick he was just that lazy! Speaking of the others,they are far and few in between in my area. I dig ginseng in the fall and always jump a few going around some fence rows getting to the hollers i need to be in. They'll sure spook the daylights out of you unexpectedly. That being said i always stand there smiling watching them dip, dive, and rocket away.
