    Okay, that’s more than a little creepy…

    Too bad (or not) it was a hoax.
    Meerkats photo report was a hoax

    Avatar of Kevin

    Maybe the snipes just want you to think that. Has anyone check to see the the camera owner suffered any untimely accidents? I bet the snipes that took that picture have already been dealt with for leaving evidence and anything that says hoax was planted after the fact. Internet access is pretty simple now a days afterall.

    This has been my favorite Bloodcast short story so far. Like all really good stories, it left me wanting … no, needing … more. Any chance you’ll be expanding this one, or at least running with it’s concept in something more novel-length?

    You know every time I watch meerkat manor, I am ready for one of them to run out of a hole with a spear. Or a few to come out holding a revolver.

    The snipe hunt was cool but a little creepy

    Avatar of David Lodge

    I would finally break down and get cable just to watch that.

    Snipehunt is what happens when you have too much alcohol/drugs and then watch meerkat manor. hehe. And it turns out that those things make a great combonation. Snipehunt is deffinitely my favorite Bloodcast short.

    Avatar of Ryan Nossek

    Snipe Hunt was GREAT; the idea of such a creature was very intriguing (sp?) and creepy. Just goes to show, there very well could be–and probably is–something (not necessarily a creature of some kind) that exists right under our noses.

    Avatar of Dustin Climer

    Agreed, snipe hunt rocked ASS!!!! Which is why I wrote up a huge synopsis on it in the siglerpedia, but you shouldn’t trust that I wrote everything that is necessary to explain it’s badassedness, so in conclusion, I urge you all to edit the siglerpedia, or DIE!

    Avatar of Maia W

    Snipe Hunt rocked and ended up being worth the wait for the last installment. Very kewl to hear Dawn and Drew included in the story. Unfortunately, I now have a new paranoia to keep me awake at night. Thanks for making me afraid of random pieces of newspaper now, Scott! Sheesh!!!

    Avatar of ogreoregon

    I listened to Snipe Hunt late one night and I swear to you that several times that night I felt
    small things running across my bed. I could feel something moving and it woke me up. It was creepy.

    I got a pdf of Snipe Hunt from David Wellington before Sigler podacasted it!

    The first rule of knowing about the Snipes – do not talk about Snipes. The second rule of knowing about  the Snipes – do NOT TALK about Snipes! Once they find out you know, it’s only a matter of time until you’re a gonner.

    I liked Snipe Hunt, but the ending seemed to lack … something.

    Not the kick you between the eyes climax we expect from Scott.

    You’re the one who told us the story :o

    Avatar of Declan Murphy

    The best bloodcast in my opinion, loved it, maybe a sequel?

    Avatar of Steve Ramusack

    I finished this on the way home from work today. Have to say I was disappointed that the fabled snipe was a meerkat. I would have worked it to be a shapeshifter with telekinetic properties, that tricks people into thinking they did NOT see anything, thus how it stays hidden for centuries. Flaw in the story is that no way lil’ pistol toting meerkats are killing people that see them, and they constantly go undetected. Needed some p-a-r-a-n-o-r-m-a-l aspect to pull it together.

    ” no way lil’ pistol toting meerkats are killing people that see them, and they constantly go undetected”

    i see you are working FOR the snipes helping them maintain the myth of their non-existence and hidden identity

    (of course i am on YOUR side, no need for the little buggers to seek me out)
    the voices just got VERY anxious

    The great thing about the snipes is that they are able to slot into most stories. I really hope we haven’t seen the last of them.

    I only got thru part 2 when I got to the office and had to wait for lunchtime to finish it. Really loved the story, great tension. More Snipes please. Wonder if any of the Nocturnals have seen snipes and if so, do the snipes have to kill the Nocturnals? Hmmmm…

    Sure, we all want to see Infected and Contagious on the big screen, but I think Snipe Hunt would be a fun movie. Clearly MUCH better than the usual made-for-Syfi channel stuff.

    I recently had a dream that woke me and made me grab my covers. Then it stayed with me all day. The genesis of that dream was The Great Snipe Hunt. It struck me in my throat and grabbed some veins. I hope this story is made into a made for cable movie because it is THE story that shook me and wouldn’t let me go. I was totally creeped out…… l love it :-)
