Better day out than me Sounder. Well done mate.

Little Loyd, What's the issue with shooting snipe? it's my favourite sport, some of the best shooting to be had in my opinion.
Plus they are very tasty, pop a few in the deep fat fryer and bingo, savoury snacks or starters.

[Snipe]

Lloyd, my little banjo maestro, if I may interject a little 'perspective' into this 'discussion'?


When I lived in england, despite living close to a preserved marsh And being a 'Birder'; Snipe were nice to see. They seemed to inhabit only the more select - or seemingly bizarre - places as their preferred habitat was swallowed up around them, month by month. Thus I too would have considered shooting one ~ for a tasty snackette ~ on a par with the continental european relish for jarred, pickled Robins!

Here, mate? Take my word for it; It's differant! Two or three snipe to an acre of the right ground is nothing to write home about. Actually Hitting one of the buggers may well be. But, having shot that little pinch of flesh and scrap of feather out of the sky? I've honestly never seen such covetous expression of appreciation and anticipation of a well earned treat as ye'll see onthe face of an natural born Irishman who's managed to get one or two!

Believe me; One of these guys shoots a snipe? There'll be plenty left he didn't shoot. And the buggers he does get are HIS! :D

I can't see the attraction either. But then, I've never sampled this particular delicacy. And, to be considered - and, from what I've whitnessed - Covetted as a Delicacy ~ fairly the Heroes Feast ~ it must add up to something pretty worthwhile?

I wouldn't knock it.



But then; A bird with its guts cooked in it? No Way On This Earth would I f*cking well Try it either! :shok: :sick:
