  • Snake season
  • Hunting season will soon be upon us and so are the snakes. Be careful out there cleaning up your deer blinds. Go to GON (Georgia Outdoor News ) and read about the hunters that were cleaning up there hunting camp and killed 50 Timber Ratters in there wood pile.

  • That's why I live in Michigan and not Georgia, Florida, Alabama, or any other state where they have nasty critters. I hate venomous snakes and pythons and gators. We only have to deal with wild boars, black bears, coyotes, and Democrats.

    Good luck -stick a big one! Ah, backstraps for dinner!

  • We have everything imaginable here Tim so it might be in u'r favor that u didn't move here anyway back when: walked out to my shop yesterday to see if the date sticker on the LP of my utility trailer was expired (yeah of course, it was) and fortunately looked down low before I tripped over it, but lying all alongside a very flattened 11.6 X 28 right rear tire on my Ferguson 35, was what first appeared to me to be a very large dead animal of some sort with serious looking fur, but the object had no foul odor. Looking even closer to the pile of whatever, I began to see 100's of small flying insects going in and out of many holes in the object, but not having my glasses on, I couldn't tell what these insects were. Retrieving my specs and getting a closer look, I then realized these were a huge colony (most likely 1,000's) of ground nest building yellow jackets! What appeared to be a light colored animal fur was actually the critter's layered paper home that spans the entire length of the flattened tire and then wraps around the front and rear treads, and at the greatest height up the sidewall, is at least 8 - 10 inched of more nest. At my age of nearing 75 in only a few weeks, I feel too untrustworthy to attack it myself (in my former career, I've seen far too many anaphylactic shock deaths from bee/wasp stings), so I've got a professional coming over to deal with the little farts!

  • I mowed the top off of one of their mounds a few years back. I can tell you a 860 in 5th gear is not fast enough!

  • I'd rather have rattlesnakes than democrats, Tim. They are more predictable and smarter, too, in my opinion.

  • If some didn't have 2 legs it would be hard to tell them apart. LOL
