View Full Version : Got him!

As some of you know I have been out of country for the last month or so working in the oil fields. I missed the opening of deer season here and now its between splits so I have a week to go. Today I did get one though :D! He was a good one! A wall hanger but I am afraid that the load of shot from the old 16 gauge tore him up too bad to mount. He was close to 4 1/2 feet long..............you see the problem it wasn't a deer but a cottonmouth moccasin that had the total NERV to sun himself with impunity on the bank of the bayou in MY BACKYARD! I forgot what a load of #6 would do to one at the range of 20 feet. He will sun no more (WICKED EVIL GRIN)

The nerve of some snakes! They don't get along well with birdshot do they?

Carlyle, At least some of us old snakes are happy that you are home:)

Sounds like it was a glorious hunt indeed. Sporting too.
