In real life, the snipe is a bird, but to the unwitting camper, the snipe has been a legend of the forest for many years. Countless numbers of outdoorsmen have roamed the wilderness armed with a stick and a bag looking for the elusive snipe, but none have ever been able to catch one…until now!
Finally, the search for the woodland snipe has ended, but the fun is just beginning! The snipe is a legendary mythical creature that experienced campers will sometimes convince novice campers to track through the wilderness. Of course, the search ends in failure and a little laughter on the part of the experienced prankster. But now a naughty prank has become a fun game and nobody will be left feeling silly playing it!
Snipe Hunt is the newest game innovation from Education Outdoors; it features two snipes and a “nest” to set them in. The game can be played in teams or an adult can hide one of the snipes and let children search for it. After turning on a switch on the bottom of the snipe, one person hides the snipe carefully. The other person then searches for the snipe, trying to find it as soon as possible. After a few minutes, the snipe starts making chirping noises that gradually increase in frequency and volume.
