    Yes, we get snipe in the Big Country during the winter. They can be found in wet boggy areas next to water or in low areas in fields that occasionally hold water. We’ve seen snipe around Lake Ft. Phantom, Lake Kirby, area ponds, and even found over two dozen one early spring in the large field at Oakwood Trails. Happy snipe hunting!
