OK just wondering. I was nearly bit by a 12" copperhead the other day while I was working at this lady's house. I stepped over it and then noticed it and slammed my shoe on it. It turned an bit at my shoe but it lost it's head to a pair of needle nose pliers.
I don't mind any snakes in my yard, but copperheads, pigmy and timber rattlers I can't have near the house because my dog is nosy, so I normally take them out to the back of the property and release them there. Nonvenomous snakes are fine though, and they eat mice, which we have millions of, if you shine a spotlight in my yard at night, you'll see thousands of little eyeshines from field mice.
Captain ever thought about investing in some yard cats??

This early in the fall, chances are it's going to be hot when you go to field dress your animal. One of the complications that hot weather brings forth is BUGS. They will land on you and your animal, lay...
