    Default Rail or Snipe hunting?

    Does anyone do any rail or snipe hunting? I have a German Shorthaired Pointer that I would love to get on some more wild birds and our current quail population isn't cutting it.

    I did some rail hunting when I was a kid in Maryland. We hunted from a boat. We paddled in small creeks and would slap a wooden paddle on the side of the boat and the rail birds would come to the edge of the creek.

    yup mockhorn island on the eastern shore is a WMA open to the public. thats if you can find the canals leading to it and not get hung up on a mud flat or oyster bar. you want to hit it at high tide , the rails are restricted to smaller areas

    Default Sorry for a late post

    Mock horn is a good spot but to work a dog i would tell you to hunt the western shore of the bay . The reason I say this is hunting rail at low tide is much more like hunting quail . One would walk kicking the the marsh grass with the dog out front . If you are still on here I will be glad to take you.
