Pot heads or rattlesnakes? [emoji2]
Potheads. You can keep rattlesnakes in check
Today's forum winner!:eagerness:
They didn't drop them from helicopters! They started crossing them with copperheads for snakehead fish control. They did it so that when the snakes swim the rattling attracts the fish giving the snake a chance to strike the fish. When not in the water, where they gather by the 100's, these hybrids hang out in the tops of trees and drop on anything that walks beneath them; giving them a better chance to spit their venom into the eyes of their unsuspecting victims, That's why people thought they were dropping them!
I heard they were also using the Navy reserve submarine unit. Seems they are sneaking them into areas along the rivers of EKY at night.
Turkeys eat a lot of snakes. I wouldn't think coyotes would have a significant impact, but lots of turkeys could. If you don't have young snakes, you don't have big snakes later on...
If I showed them the hole where I dropped Pap's Zebco 33, you think they could find it for me?
They can start stocking rattle snakes on my farm any time they want.
I'm ready to start up a chapter of Copperheads Unlimited and sue the KDFWR! It is totally unfair that they are stocking rattlers and not copperheads (or water moccasins). Florida Fish and Wildlife has been stocking pythons and boa constrictors, maybe we need to use to get those stocked also!
yep, first piece of strategy in a lying contest, go last.
I heard the stocking went bad, the snakes had to wear little parachutes to keep from getting killed from the fall from the helicopters and once they hit the ground couldn't get them off and the cords got tangled in the brush and they died right there from starvation.
Did they have Blue Tags in their ears? If so those were turned loose about ten years ago.
I've seen'em with leg bands, but no ear tags.
I've heard the ears are the best eaten...
