When they find me they find a 45 or a shovel, whichever is at arms length.

Thumbs up Fresh Kill

I have never been on a rattle round up but would not mined doing that. I did have a daunting pleasure of killing a 46" Cotton Mouth on my front porch last night.

Wife was pissed that I was doing it barefooted.

Our 24/7 burgular alarm went off ( 6 pound pomeranian ) like there was no tomorrow.

Dang thing was sliding up the glass door.

Tools used Frog gigger, hoe, .22 air rifle.

Frog gigged it first. To hold it in place. Stabbed it with one prong through the middle.
You know it did not like that too much so the venom slanging was going on and the stink was in the air. Strong pungent musk.

Popped it once with the air rifle and the took it away from the koi pond and used the hoe for the finally.

Now that I think about it too bad I did not get any pics.

There was one thing that was very unfortunate.

My beer got hot.

I chunked it out the back by a bar ditch and came around the front to wash the draveway down. Heard a noise over head and saw a owl with a snake flying overhead. I bet it was it. I know its not where I threw it too many animals travel that area. I live real close to a wildlife habitat. I will try and get the wife to take some pics next time. If I can get her to come out side. LOL
