Snipe eaters...

8 posts in this topic

Anybody eat snipe out there? We shot a couple of snipe this weekend and cleaned them up - but all the duck meat got mixed in the marinade bowl and we lost track of which pieces they were. Didn't get sick yet, but just curious if anyone else bothers with cleaning/eating the little runts.

Thought about shooting some of the little buggers but never did. We saw a lot of them around us. We had a bunch of Rails around too, they tempted us but Ike said they don't taste very good so we decided against it.

My group takes them when we can. Not much meat on them, but it's pretty good... similar to dove. Usually breast them out, wrap a strip of bacon around the meat, pin with a toothpick and grill. Good stuff.

Our party has had good luck with marinating them and then grilling them with using their pointed bills as skewers like kabobs. Let me know if you try it.

Wrap them in 1/2 slice of bacon on a skewer or thick toothpick, marinade in soy/sauce & brown sugar, and grill or broil them. They are excellent!

Hey dead eye blind,

Skewered meat on their beaks, eh? I challenge you to put your "snipe meat" where your mouth is. The next time I see you, I want to see your culinary creation and watch you actually eat it. smirk.gif

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.

      Thanks for all info. Even if I end up staying at the kawashiwi river campground (which I've done the past 2 years), now I at least know where to drive around and scout out some spots for next trip.

      Good advice! I appreciate it. And good to hear from you. I found fish over the weekend on reef tops with few if any bites. I should've moved on but 11-12" fish made me think better ones might come. The good fish I did find were on the sides of reefs.  I'm off the water for family business, but hoping for a good August!
