The James T. Callow Folklore Archive
When we'd go up north to our cottage, we kids would get together
and play this trick on any newcomers to our group: Snipe
Hunting. We'd send the newcomers with a burlap bag down to the
creek. We'd tell them to wait there until we'd driven the
snipes, which were half chicken and half rabbit, toward the
creek. Then the newcomers were to catch the snipes in the bag.
Then we'd go back to the cottage and wait to see how long the
newcomers would stay by the creek.
