I have just the opposite of claustrophobia. Stick me in a phone booth, I'm fine, but put me in a big field, or on a beach at the ocean, and I freak. 

Did anyone ever take you Snipe hunting as a child?

I go every sprinr. Snipe season in Ohio is in May. I called Fish and Game when I moved to Idaho, to see if it was the same as Ohio. They Laughed at me. I'm thinking they must have thought that was a little early in the year. I'm still going in May, unless I'm told otherwise.

Why would you want to hunt one of these little creatures? they don't look like they would have much meat on them at all

It's just for sport.  You catch and release them.  Best time to get them is at night in the woods.  Just shine a flashlight into a bag and make clicking sounds with your tongue and they run right into the bag.   ;D

I would have never thought that Snipe hunting would actually be described in Wiki. Kind of ruins the sport.,  :'(
