Just got back from checking stuff out down on the creek. Was looking at last two holes of water. And all of a sudden Water Moccasin!!! Left gun in mule. So I commenced to chunking big ass rocks. Busted it good but it managed to crawl in a small hole in the bank!!!

So I trotted my happy ass back to the mule and grab this old Sear Roebuck 20 ga breakopen especially for this purpose. Got back down and was inspecting the bank and holy schidt another hunkered on the bak in the mudand water waiting for a victim. BOOM busted his azz. While taking his pic about 4’ away ANOTHER!!! BOOM! Blowed that bastid clean across the creek. Then I decided to get my ass outta there.

These weren’t common water snakes or broad banded water snakes or diamond back water snakes. These were bone fide mocs!! All I could think of was that poor Irish kid on Lonesome Dove!!!
This was just like in a movie. I wasn’t waiting around for others!!
I’ll try to get a pic up in a minute.

Sounds like a fun place to throw a sleeping bag down and spend the night.

Not.

They're invading Bob.

Good thing you got a start on them!

Good deal Bob. Hate those nasty bastards.
I’ve flat wore out a couple of good fishing poles on a couple that tried to climb in a ole John boat with me at the cousins place in E TX.
Thank God I never seen one in the creek or small tank here on the Ranch.
Got too many rattlesnakes to deal with as it is.

I keep an old cut down Steven’s SXS 12ga, behind the front door for any that come in the yard.
And a 870 for them on the Ranger for in the pasture or fields.

More good moccasins! They are #1 on my list of things to whack here in Florida. Killed my last one in the front yard with a shovel.

I didn’t stick around to see if I could find anymore. Everyone of these was less than 5 feet from me when I started a chunkin and a shootin!! There another small hole of water another 100 yards up the creek. I bet they are just a bad there. This spot has vertical banks about 8’ high. Cypress and vines overhead like almost triple canopy! One way back out to the creek crossing.

For some reason I just hate snakes.

Way back when I was a kid we used to shoot rattlers off the rocks along the Columbia near Vantage, WA. Killed a ton of them.....

Killed quite a few of them, I pondered which smelled better White Shoulders perfume or a big fat cottonmouth, it's a toss-up, same same
