    Good luck rat, and be careful. Ever since i had a copperhead hang up in my pant leg, i look under my hives in the woods and and in the Big Sac river areas. I bought a pistol (the Judge) that shoots 410 and 45 shells just in case i see anotherone around the hives. Snake huntings not my thing, so you won't have any competition from me.:grin: Jack

    Why would anyone want to hunt snakes? If I see a snake I stay well away from it.

    And most people will say "Why would anyone want to keep bees? If I see a bee I stay well away from it"

    Snakes and bees can be fun once you understand them.

    The 5 cousins and I used to catch them live around Orlando and sell to the Ross Allen Reptile Institute for venom.
    I have plenty of snakes on the farm I just bought north of Gainesville/ LaCrosse. Help yourself to all the snakes you want. I did not tell my wife after I went back in the woods surveying. There are some beautes back there since the forest has never been worked.
