Shot another Cottonmoutth
And, I had my snake boots on this time. He didn't strike, though. It's the kinda day that brings out the snakes. Cool and sunny and spring after a few days of rain. He was near the feeder sunning when I rode up on the Arctic Cat to fill the feeder and check the game camera. The camera caught a pic of this serpent yesterday evening I thought I'd share. There's a pig setting up a routine, too, just after dark Need to go set up the motion detector in a bit and get the hog rifle ready for an ambush. :D
I rode up on this thing and saw him just by my right foot peg. Shot him with .22 mag rat shot from my Heritage RR twice in the head, second for good measure as he was still wiggling. After I raised my feeder back up, his tail twitched a few times. Since my dog was eyeing him, made me a bit nervous, shot his head off with a .38 158 grain JHP. THAT finished the battle beyond any doubt. :D I tossed him across the fence. I hate those danged things.
