Seeing snakes is just part of being in the woods guys

january the snakes are in full hibernation mode however and you'll have to go to a zoo to see a snake then

I wonder how many hundred snakes I walked over without seeing them. In three trips during the hotter months, I only saw one black snake, and none of the venomous guys. Guess I was too focused on the piggies.

Snakes Hibernate that far south [Roll Eyes]
Here I thought it was sunshine 24-7 beaches and flip flops [banghead]

I guess I'll bring the long johns and cold weather gear for sittin in stand in sub zero weather from sun up to sun down.

I have been thinking about how to make a moving pig Target. What do you say guys.

Python Ken? Try an Anaconda!!! [laughing]

Hey guys-
The hunt isn't until January, and this is only May. Slow down a little, or you will be all worn out by the time you get there.
Oh yeah, forgot to tell you guys about the hibernation thing.

I just don't worry about snakes that much- its the spotted mountain gorillas that keep me up at night- that and the gators hiding in six inches of water!

Izzy, I don't think there has ever been one taken with a traditional bow and arrow. They are extremely quick. So quick in fact, that originally they were called Striped Mountain Gorillas. Then someone saw one standing still.

 - Biggie, this here critter on the left of the pic is one of them gorillas you speak of.He thought he had the drop on me when he snuck up from behind but as you can see I had him in a Mr.Miagi hand grip and subsequently tossed him into the ditch out front.I could have easily arrowed him and beat Fred Eichler and Nate Anderson to the coveted 1st trad spotted gorilla but I let him go with only a bruised ego.
