Snipe Hunting at Hamilton Creek Sailboat Marina


Location visible to members


Join us for our "Fourth Annual Snipe Hunt" at Hamilton Creek Sailboat Marina.

These seldom seen terrestrial (flightless) birds come out only at night and only with much coaxing from our group of experienced "brush beaters" who scare them out of the bushes and down the dark trails where our "bagmen" await them with open paper bags illuminated by a flashlight!

Snipe hunting is a 100% humane form of hunting as no Snipes are injured during their capture and release. Bring your paper bags, flashlights, marshmallows and a comfortable pair of shoes.

There will be a special prize for the most Snipes caught by a single person.
