You would be suprised how good it is, bit like a rich pate.....best way is roast it on a piece of bread with a rasher of bacon on top....the bread turns into the best piece of fried bread you ever had....spread the inards onto the bread or just eat it without as it’s covered in the juices and bacon fat .....

I was in a country pub in Mayo a few years ago, there were some French lads over shooting, they were plucking snipe and rolling them in 3 sheets of news paper, then dunking them in water. They then through them in the open fire, when the fire had the paper all but burned they would start eating, mind they were drunk haha

I was gonna do it once............... then I remembered that they eat worms and that the guts are just digested worms!........ I wasn't hungry enough by then. LOL

The flesh though is divine!

Saw the first of this season on Saturday. Very unlikely to be a resident imo. Likely a very early migrant that came over on the hunters moon.

Get a few woodcock on my trail cams scavenging around in the dark, old farmer often asks me if I,ve seen any if we meet 👍

I would say we have had good numbers in my neck of the woods ( Cotswolds ) . Surprised by the number of shoots I go on that don’t allow them to be shot . I think they are a good sporting bird and if they offer a good spotting shot why not take one ? I’m afraid that shoot owners are reading and believing RSPB propaganda about low numbers . Not the case , there are good numbers arriving on our shores each November. The amount shot would have zero impact on numbers anyway. They also taste good , I’ve never eaten the guts though , not brave enough or hungry enough!!
