Snipe hunting to open at Cameron refuge

BELL CITY (AP) — Snipe hunting will open Monday at the Cameron Prairie National Wildlife Refuge for a season that will run

through Feb. 18.

U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service officials say hunting will be open every day from a half hour before sunrise until sunset.

Hunters are required to carry a signed copy of the refuge regulations while hunting.

Hunting dogs are permitted but must remain under control of the hunter.

A post hunt "Harvest Form" must be filled out after each hunt at the self-clearing check station near the entrance to the

Refuge Visitor Center.
