Hey guys thought I would share another thing I like to do with you all.I have a friend who is a snake guy,I realy have a good time going hunting with him for the big Timbers this one is 52 inches the biggest one I ever found myself in these Ky Mountians
Hillbilly LoL,I have trained myself and on the hunt training with some good friends through the years,and actualy became good at locating and finding the Timber Ratller,also we have snake chaps,hooks,and catching tonges to catch them in this photo the way it took you can not see it,but I was holding him on a hook out like that.I have released around 100 babys in the past few years around den sites to help keep our population,I have returned far more than I have caught for use,over the years that 100 can add up alot.Now when im senging i do not want to see these timbers,especialy in a briar thicket or around a nice patch of seng,because at that time I am not prepared to catch one I always watch for them,before crossing a log,entering a thicket as 5prong spake of,or any other area of possability for one to be,i am very cautious,sometimes in certain areas i am actualy a slow hunter,moving wise,but when I go snake hunting it is a different mind set.I am hoping to catch a huge male 1 or 2 maybe for my friends.I have caught around 250,but have just looked at most of them and released them,I release all females,and 97 0/0 of all males as soon as i have caught them,only the big males are kept.I will also remove them from a place they do not need to be,like low in the mountian,or around anyones house etc,alot of folks out here live directly in the woods and rite in the foothills,some do not want to kill them,others are glad to,I will help those who dont want to,and take them back high away from the people where they should be around the dens I know of sevral.
i always thought the Timbers. were a part of the woods landscape just like the sang and the other critters that live there..enjoyed seeing them once in awhile..always checked them out then let them go on thier way unharmed..
Hey Guys I wanted show you all my newest Ginsenging buddy she is only 8 mounths now,but she loves them big tops I bring home and im sure by 4 she will be reay to dig a big ole 4 fork out of Paws patch Elexius Marie
Billy, I'm not sure if that is your daughter or granddaughter, but either way that is one adorable child. She's got beautiful blue eyes and in about 16 years somebody's goin to have problems keeping all those teenage boys away. Good luck and God bless.
