Snipe hunting around here involves taking some unknowing guy out in the woods with a sack, some rope & a lot of beer. At some point, the guy gets the sack put over his head, gets his arms tied & is left in the middle of the woods to find his way home. At least that's how the Good Ol' boys do a snipe hunt around here.
There, you all know the secret. When someone invites you on a snipe hunt, just say "no thanks."
