My stepson had to remove the head on a cottonmouth Monday while we were squirrel hunting. Just be careful about shooting those 12 point bucks in velvet.:biggrin::fit:oke:
We down round Sparkman too, and I just stated to one of our members that the number of snakes are on the rise.....been down there 3 years and never seen a snake...Labor day weekend saw at least 2 rattlers and 1 cottonmouth...got up close and personal with the cottonmouth as we stared each other down....couldn't slap leather on 'em cause my hands where full and I was pretty hot/tired........always wear my 16" of snake protection no matter the state.During the past couple of weeks & especially last weekend we have encountered many more cottonmouths than usual. Our lease is in Dallas Cty.
around the Sparkman area.Last Sunday alone we came across 4 of these good size nasty,aggressive critters. Though rattlesnakes are aplenty on our lease we really haven't encountered any so far whiledoing stand work.
I've heard from others around the MAlvern area that they too have recently encountered more cottomouths than normal. A word of caution :
Please be careful out there. Stay healthy.
How many did you take in with ya??????? to get the free brew that isI kilt a tiny little copperhead that slithered out from under the neighbors refridgerator last night. He don't do snakes and about flipped out until I "removed it." After that, the beers were on the house! :thumb:
I usually take a half case or so, just to be nice to the host. If snakes keep showing up, I may not have to take any for a while! :chug:How many did you take in with ya??????? to get the free brew that is
Man, it's a good thing I got shoulders! I'll try not to slither too much...:uhoh:My son found a little snake of some kind underneath their basketball goal stand the other day and I introduced him to the shovel (The snake... not my boy) :clap:
We have a pretty hard and fast... you slither... you die... rule around here. :up:
If any of you ever find yourself at my house I would walk upright and not slither around on the ground or you might find yourself in a bad situation. :fit:
