YIKES!

To me snake hunting should be done with a short double 12 ga ::)

pass..............i am out on that.
 i think amos moses was a little smarter than those guys.
you would expect that from a bunch of crackheads but those guys looked normal right up until they grabbed that 1st snake.


on a side note: we just came in off the right of way and we killed a ground rattler today 12-9-08 it is probably 46 degrees where we got him and the temp is headed south now.
thats just crazy to me.it the latest i have ever seen a snake out.

I had to stop watching about 2 minutes into it.  My skin was starting to crawl and I was getting right uncomfortable.

I don't know if any of them were cottonmouths, but some of them shore did look to be.

That just ain't right.   smiley_dizzy

I'd be willing to bet they have vials of anti-venom with them.

Recon they're catching them to harvest more venom?
