Does anybody actually hunt rails?  Why would they bother?  Even  with dogs to 
flush and retrieve the few birds that might be located, I  can't imagine that 
it would be a satisfying hunt, nor that there would be enough  meat on a rail 
(even a Virginia, much less a Yellow) to eat.  Shooting 15  rails, if you 
could, would barely make a pot pie.  Moreover, I've never  seen a taxidermified 
rail in the sort of places where you see deer  heads and stuffed ducks, geese 
and pheasants on the wall.
